As a favor at a party, or a holiday present for everyone on your team at work, a decorated cookie in each person’s initial is personalized, handmade, tasty, and thoughtful.

The cookie bags shown here are sealed with my artwork—use the To/From version to give as gifts and the plain “Hey, Cookie!” version to let guests bag up their creations at the end of a cookie-decorating party, or mix them up however you like.

What you’ll need:


Step 1 Download the “Cookie Favor Bag” template, print onto cardstock, cut, and fold in half so that it looks like a tented place card.

Step 2 Slip cookie into a cellophane bag and fold the top of the bag over about ¼ inch.

Step 3 Sandwich the folded top of the cello bag between the sides of the tented cardstock and secure with a staple on each side.
