seashells, starfish, sand dollars + packing cookies

Mini SeaShells, StarFish and Sand Dollars
Hello!! I've been working on some minis... I love minis! They are great for jars and boxes ~ Hola!! He estado trabajando en unos minis... me encantan las minis! Son excelentes para frascos y cajas...

Today I will show you how I pack some boxes ~ Hoy les voy a mostrar como empaco algunas cajas...

Bag, Pack and Wrap your COOKIES ~ Embolsa, empaca y envuelve tus GALLETAS




I use clear celophane bags... you want to buy food safe. And we need some kind of device for sealing bags. You can get a heat sealing machine or as I did, use a mini flat iron. I use mine exclusively for this purpose ~ Yo uso bolsas de celofan... compra las que son especiales para alimentos. Y necesitamos un aparato que sirva para sellar bolsas. Puedes comprar una selladora de calor o como hice yo, usar una mini planca alaciadora. Esta la usa exclusivamente para este propósito...




Cute, isn't it? ~ Linda, verdad?




Start by bagging your minis ~ Empieza por embolsar tus minis...




I turn the iron On once I have all the COOKIES bagged, that way I work faster ~ Yo enciendo la plancha una vez que tengo todas las GALLETAS embolsadas, de esa forma trabajo más rápido...




Be careful when using the flat iron! It gets VERY HOT and you can burn and end with an ugly blister. Also, turn it Off if it gets too hot, or it will crinkle the celophane. We are looking for nice flat sealing ~ Ten cuidado cuando uses la plancha alaciadora! Se pone MUY CALIENTE y puedes quemarte y terminar con una ampolla. Tambien, apágala si se pone muy caliente, o va a arrugar el celofán. Estamos buscando un lindo sellado liso...




Leave 1/2" between the COOKIE and the place where you seal the bag ~ Deja 1 cm entre la GALLETA y el lugar en donde vas a sellar la bolsa...




Place the bagged COOKIES in the box ~ Pon las GALLETAS embolsadas en la caja...



This box has 2 layers of 4 bags with 3 mini COOKIES on each bag... that's 2 dozen COOKIE box ~ Esta caja tiene 2 capas de 4 bolsas con 3 mini GALLETAS en cada bolsa... es una caja con 2 docenas de GALLETAS...




I used Tangerine Twine from The Twinery and added these Sand Dollar & Starfish Double Punch by Martha Stewart ~ Use Tangerine Twine de The Twinery y le agregué Sand Dollar & Starfish Double Punch by Martha Stewart...




Same box with Grosgrain Ribbon ~ La misma caja con Listón de Popotillo...




Corporate gift with one regular COOKIE and 2 layers of 5 minis. Love the blue! ~ Regalo corporativo con una GALLETA tamaño regular y dos capas de 5 minis. Me encanta ese azul!




A mini gift... I used Coffee Sack Brown Jute Twine I received as gift from my friend RosaMaria ~ Un mini detallito... Usé Cordón de Jute en color Coffee Sack Brown que me regaló mi amiga RosaMaria...

alfajores in a box

Last week I had an order of 200 Alfajores for J&E's Wedding... they asked for 100 boxes tied with grosgrain white ribbon, and 100 with the same ribbon in apple green... I made regular Cornstarch Alfajores (Alfajor de Maicena), filled with Dulce de Leche, and the borders rolled in shredded sweet coconut... the little boxes were put on each guest's place, intercalating white and green, colors they used... they ordered the little tags, too, which had their monogram and new address, something I found cool as many guests were from out of town, and can stay in contact with them...

I loved how they looked (you know I'm not good at taking photos, but you get the idea ;) )


I've made these boxes with 1, 2, 4, 8, 9 and 18 Alfajores... and in different flavors, too!

valentine's cookie tags

This tag is for COOKIE favor orders, boxes, baskets and COOKIE bouquets for next week... my phone number is on the tag, so people that receive one of my COOKIES can contact me...

I have great customers who reached me through saved tags, stickers, or toppers... depending on the event, I put it on the front, back, top or bottom...
