It is that time of year when we are all baking for our sweethearts! The baking isn't so bad, but the packaging can get pretty costly. I made some treats the other day and went about the house looking for inspiration on packaging them frugally. I had emptied my oatmeal container when baking my cookies...so instead of tossing it I decided recycled it.
First I covered it with scrapbook paper. Then I added embellishments...ribbon, buttons, a cute tag! I just used materials that I already had in my craft room.
So, bake up some goodies for your sweetheart! Then dig through your craft supplies and make something cute to package them up!
