Pretty Packaging for Edible Gifts!
Hello! I’m so happy that you are here. I don’t say that enough. But I am really, really lucky to have you here!
Last week I mentioned in my Cherry Ice Box Cookie post about a way to package up cookies for gift giving. So I finally got a little tutorial together to show you how you can do this is a practical and pretty way!
Cookies look nice all wrapped up in pretty paper, but what about the grease marks? Um, not so pretty. But do not fret. 😉 You can still have your pretty packaging!
Using wax paper and some pretty paper, you’ve got pretty AND practical wrapping paper! (side note: I do believe I used the word pretty 6 times in this post already…moving on)
It’s the most simple little project using supplies you already have at home, and it can be done in less than 5 minutes.
All you need is wax paper, some pretty scrapbook paper or tissue paper, punches or any flat embellishments you like, and an iron. These are fun to make…they take me back to the days of Kindergarden when you ironed together wax paper and crayons…remember that?!
How to make Pretty Packages for Edible Gifts:
- Just punch or cut out some festive little shapes.
- Sprinkle them on one sheet of wax paper.
- Top with another sheet of wax paper.
- Lay down a sheet of white paper to protect your iron.
- Iron the sheet.
There are so many things you can do with this. Use sequins, tissue paper, punched out shapes…
That’s it. So easy, practical and pretty!
I hope you found this little idea useful!
Have a delicious day!

I’m so happy to have found this post! I was going nuts trying to think of the best way to elegantly wrap my mini banana breads for my brunch guests that are coming. I’ll be digging my paper punchers out of the garage and have a great go!
What type of wax paper do you use? I am using a store brand and it just will not seal. I guess it doesn’t have enough wax on it.
