NEATO! Cookie Favors

Cookie Favors

 
Hello! Thanks for joining me for the first of many Neato Ideas Blog!
I came up with this idea for this Neato cookie favor while I was at a birthday party and I knew I could improve it.  It is super simple and easy to complete.
This unique craft and recipe will use our paper window CD sleeves (Sku# CWP-190691) and also our full sheet vinyl labels (Sku# WRL-FULL). This craft is simple to assemble, with and end result of about 100 favors for $30 or under.

What You Will Need

  • Cookies
  • Scissors or a paper cutter
  • Computer access
  • Paper window sleeves (CWP-190691) Find them here!
  • White full sheet vinyl (WRL-FULL) Find them here!
  • Plastic wrap
  • Creativity!

Creating the Labels

When you purchase the full sheet vinyl labels you have access to our online design software.  There will be a registration code on the front of the package of labels.  I will be using this program for the majority of these Neato Ideas, so if you are sitting there and realizing that you do not have the program, well then, what are you waiting for!? 🙂  On the design page please go to the beer/wine, craft button in the lower left corner and click.  With all the templates in front of you, I would love it if you would select the one that says Neato raffle tickets. Now I know some of you may be thinking that I have lost my mind and why would we need a raffle ticket template?  I have not lost it yet!

I hope you are still with me because this is where it gets super fun and creative. Each raffle ticket has two parts and there will not be a line there when we print.  If you feel confident go ahead and create your own label. This software offers colors of backgrounds, inserting text or pictures, not to mention you can paint and draw shapes.
For everyone that wants a little bit of assistance then in the options on the left side there is an option for templates and layouts. Click the templates and there will be a couple of options to start you off and then you can throw your own personalized touches on top of an already made design.  When you are all finished with designing, print.

Ingredients

    • 2 cups butter
    • 4 cups flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda

Assembly

All the parts are now ready to be assembled!

First cut out your labels. I used an x-acto knife and a metal T-square ruler but scissors or a paper cutter will work just fine.

Now we need to wrap the cookies in plastic wrap. You can wrap one at a time if your cookies are bigger. Mine came out kind of small so I wrapped two cookies together. Slide the cookies in the paper window sleeve.

Seal with your label and make sure you see about 1/2 to 3/4 of the label in the front and partially over the window. There should be enough label left to bring to the back and seal the sleeve.

That is it! A personalized way of sending your guest away with something not only memorable but yummy.
