Holiday packaging does not always have to hide your gift. Especially if you are wrapping something like beautifully decorated cookies or other yummy treats. We carry a variety of clear boxes and bags in lots of sizes that will make your holiday packaging projects a breeze. 

Here's three clear gift wrapping ideas I'm going to be using this year ...

In this first sample, I packaged a snowman sugar cookie from Starbucks in one of our clear bags and tied the bag close with a clear twist tie topped off with a red ribbon bow. I like to give gift cards to friends and family for the holidays so I also packaged a Starbucks gift card inside a red striped pillow box. The pillow box was tied to the cookie packaging using red baker's twine. This would make a great gift idea for clients, staff and teachers.

This beautiful snowflake cookie from Cupid's Bakery was packaged inside of a clear bag that I embellished with a header that I made using our kraft wrapping paper, lace ribbon tape, baker's twine and chalkboard stickers. I cut the kraft wrapping paper using our wrapping paper cutter ... a great time saver if you plan to do a lot of gift wrapping this year! You can write on the chalkboard stickers using chalk markers!

Here's one more packaging idea using our clear boxes. The clear boxes come in many different of sizes. I filled one of the 2x2 clear boxes with some mini chocolates that I purchased at Costco. I created holiday  wrappers to fit the mini chocolates and you can download them below if you would like to make these too. I used silver mylar sizzle in my box to keep the chocolates in place. Baker's twine adds a little colour to my packaging and is a good choice if you don't like to tie ribbon bows. I used a chalkboard sticker on the bottom of my box to use as a gift tag.

You can download my art for the holiday chocolate wrappers here. You will find directions for how to use the wrappers on the download. Many of the graphics used on the wrappers were from Luvly.co. 

Luvly is a premium digital design marketplace, selling graphics, images and vectors. You can find everything from invitations to clip art to scrapbooking designs. It's my new favourite place to be to find graphics when I am short on time and don't have time to create my own art from scratch!

Happy wrapping!
