Cookie Tins '09

Time to assemble my cookie tin gifts:

First, start shopping for cookie tins in October. I dragged Brad to three Michael's stores over Thanksgiving. I love the ones where you can see through the lids!

I've been collecting holiday cupcake papers all year. I think I have enough to last me a couple of years!

Then bring in all the cookies I made (somewhere around 94 dozen, not counting the candy, caramels and toffee...) from the garage fridge and freezer.

Assemble layer 1: Assembly line work is fun!

Spicy nuts and toffee are packaged in holiday bags:

Finally, a quick way to wrap a gift. I save my Trader Joe's coffee cans ( I go though MANY), wash them, and wrap them with holiday scrapbook paper. A simple decoration, and it is a perfect, quick wrap for small items.

Fantastic collection! I love tins and boxes, there are so many that are just cunning. Yours will make wonderful gifts.

I am incredibly happy to say that I have been the very lucky recipient of Palma's handiwork. J. and I spent the evening nibbling away on the delicious treats prepared by the very talented Palma! Grazie tanto!

You are so inspiring,Palma. But, how do you keep from nibbling at all of those stored goodies?

WOW!!! It is like an assembly line or factory all run by you! (with a little bit of help from Brad). Simply amazing. Looks like you had a grand time.
