packing inspiration in the LCBO's holiday 2012 Food & Drink magazine

Have you picked up the newest copy of the LCBO's Food and Drink magazine? The holiday 2012 issue is in stores now and there are lot of fabulous packaging ideas using many of our products!!

I love reading this magazine, not because it is free or because the pictures are always so amazing, no I read it because I know that I am always going to find fabulous recipes and entertaining ideas. Over the years I have collected drink recipes for entertaining at the cottage, food recipes for every holiday as well as packaging and decorating inspiration. I thought that I'd share with you some of the packaging ideas that caught my eye in the Holiday 2012 edition ... of course, all of them are using products that can be found at Creative Bag!!

We have some of the most incredible ribbons in the stores right now ... the May Arts ribbons are some of my favourties. 


Ribbon, jewellery boxes, coffee bags and paper bags are used to package shortbread cookies on this page. The ideas are simple to recreate and make homemade gifts look like they were purchased at a fancy bakery. 
Wood serving cones are perfect for serving finger foods at any party ... these look so festive when filled with shortbread.
I have been packing s'more favors in our clear chinese take out boxes ... this is another twist on the same idea using our clear boxes.
This is the first recipe I can't wait to try with my girls ... homemade marshmallows!!! I love the simple packaging using our clear food bags and ribbon bows. These would make wonderful hostess and teachers gifts paired with a container of hot chocolate.
