Each year I make goodie boxes for my Family at Christmas time. I always make fudge and a few other treats….but the hardest part is coming up with a way to package them. I know a good old paper plate does the trick with some foil on top. But I like to try to make them look pretty too….without costing to much.
While I was at Cash and Carry picking up the Chinese take out food boxes. I saw these cute little cardboard food boxes….my brain started to spin and I thought they would be perfect for my Christmas treat boxes. You do have to buy them in a package of 50, I think they were about $5.50 ( can’t remember the exact price). So they are about .11 cents each. They have a waxy coating on them so they work great for food items.
I added a little tissue paper, and filled them with the goodies we made.
They fold right up….super easy.
They are just so cute!
I then tied a bow around them. I always pick up ribbon AFTER the holidays and save it for the next year. This spool of ribbon was $5.99 but I got it for about .50 cents last year in February. Thinking ahead saves money! They turned out really cute…. I am excited to see what other ideas I can up to use these.
