gingham parchment from world market
i’m always checking out the latest products at the very cool store, world market. the other day, i was surprised to find this gingham parchment paper for baking. well, instead of using it for baking i’m making cute care packages. it quickly transforms containers from bland to very cute. all you need is a plastic produce container that your store bought fruit and vegetables come in.
we all have these containers in our home, so now here is a way to upcycle them. i cut off the lids and use the bottoms for this project.
all you have to do is cut a sheet that is bigger than the container. with the right side face down, place the baked pastries in the center of the paper. wrap the parchment around the tasty treats and then place it in the plastic container. next, wrap with cute coordinating ribbon and decorate with flowers or a tag, just have fun creating.
i’ve been using these pretty containers for my daughter’s friend’s birthday gifts. lately, she wants to bring a little treat to school for these occasions and this is the best solution packaging up these edible gifts. so now, i always have these materials on hand for those last minute gifts. have fun creating these cute care packages and thanks for dropping by!
