valentines gift tags

valentines gift tagI have a couple of friends who anticipate my kitchen sink cookies on just about any festive occasion.  Valentines day is absolutely a festive reason to send a little sweet box of love. I baked up a batch of the scrumptious wonders, boxed them and created my own little gift tag. I wanted them to look like a Valentine we might have made when we were in grade school.  I think I pulled it off?paper holesTo prepare, I sat on the sofa watching the bachelor and punched holes. I use a three hole punch and stack several sheets of paper.

Draw a whimsical outline around the balloon.  It shouldn’t look perfect.  This is like the Valentines you made when you were a kid. Part of the charm is that it looks handmade. Eat a cookie and package the rest. Okay, wait; eat two cookies… Finish the package with pretty ribbon and attach the card.
