Christmas Cookies

So today Ms Olive and I delivered the cookies to the neighborhood.  She wore her Santa Costume and looked so cute.

To wrap the cookies, I created a cookie box using a plain old white box from target (the kind you wrap gifts in the christmas wrap department).  I used just some plain brown paper and crumpled it.  then I dotted the paper with distress ink.     After adhereing them ot the box I lined the box with foil and some pretty tissue paper.   On top I added one of those cool chalkboard labels that I love.   Of course I used bakers twine.
