How to make your own DIY cookie box
1.)What better way to reuse those shoe box lids or amazon boxes than a cookie box!! The process is super simple. First, get a box that will hold all the cookies, or a shoe box lid.
2.) Wrap the outside of the lid in your favorite wrapping paper, or crate paper.
3.) Cut out a piece of parchment paper and line the inside and sides of the box, to insure that the box doesn’t absorb the oils from the cookies.
5.) Add your favorite raffia or tissue paper. (I purchased mine from Target in the party section.)
6.) Be sure to add dimension to your cookies by stacking them, wrapping a bow around a group of them, and putting some sideways. Arrange cookies accordingly in the box lid creating different piles of cookies.
7.) Add some color with chocolate, candy, ornament balls, ribbon, flowers, pinecones or even pine leaves. Thats it! Your cookie box is completed! To add the final touch wrap the entire box in cellophane wrap and finish with a bow. Gift & Enjoy!

If you’re looking for a quick way to get the same effect without having to do any wrapping head to Target or Homegoods and pick up a wooden cutlery tray. It is the perfect size and will have the perfect squares to put different types of cookies!
