Cookie Gift Wrap Idea For Less Than $10!!

“Double Chocolate Espresso Almond Cookies” Gift Idea

Click here for the recipe

This is an easy to make gift idea that anybody can do. All you need is a rectangular basket, some cellophane paper, a rubberband and some decorative ribbon. I got everything at Michael’s craft store. With coupons, it was all less than $10! I dare you to find a decorative basket at the mall cheaper than that!

  

I made this as a 4 sided bow gift so the decorative bow can be seen from each side of the gift. After wrapping the cookies in some plastic wrap you will need to cut some cellophane large enough that the sides can be gathered up around the basket toward the center. When pulling the cellophane together, pull it from the corners of the cellophane, not the sides. Matching them corner to corner will ensure a better gathering and work easier. Pull tightly to the center, twist, and secure with a rubberband.

In the above picture,  you will first place the ribbon underneath the bottom of the basket and pull the ribbon up around the top of each side and wrap around the center knot by overlapping the ribbon and pulling in the opposite direction.

Next, you will then pull both sides of the ribbon tightly toward you.

Tie a knot by taking the right side of the ribbon and looping it underneath the left side and through the hole.

Now, secure the knot tightly around the center.

Now tie a basic bow making the loops even on each side.

Next, turn the basket towards you on the next side and tie an additional bow with the ribbon, making the loops even. Adjust and manuever them to set the bows in the most attractive position that you prefer. This gives it a 4 sided bow to be seen from every angle that is much more attractive than a basic bow.

Trim any of the leftover ribbon if you like by cutting the ribbon at an angle cut.

There you go….a personal homemade gift, in every way, that is just as beautiful as a store bought gift, but for a fraction of the cost!
