A last-minute treat idea


The other night, I got a text from my friend Lynn telling me she'd just dropped off some of her famous Christmas fudge at my front door. I couldn't wait, because I've been the happy recipient of her fudge before and knew it was delicious!

She did two packaging techniques that I thought were so clever, I wanted to share them here. First, for padding, she used a paper doily! Now I always have paper doilies on hand, so I found this such a pretty and clever way to fill out a container.

The other technique is probably one I'm the last person on earth to figure out, but … I wondered where she found the square papers to present the chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge, but they're just round mini cupcake papers, and they conform to the shape of whatever's in them, apparently. That's so simple and sensible that I never would have figured it out if I hadn't seen it! Don't know if you'll be packaging up any treats for others in the next few days (or to enjoy, as I did, at your own personal teatime), but I thought these packaging ideas were worth sharing!


  1. Pretty presentation is the best! Looks festive and delicious too!

  2. Good ideas for packaging that box of deliciouness. Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for passing along those great tips! And boy, that fudge looks yummy. I was very happy yesterday to finally receive the box of Christmas cookies from my sister! It had been delayed in the mail, as many packages are this year. Of course, I had to try several with a nice cup of tea, and they tasted great, as well as being very pretty. And only one was broken in transit--the camel suffered a broken leg.

  4. Beautiful presentation. Thanks for sharing.

  5. The packaging is great! Thanks for passing along the idea.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
