Pringles tube to the rescue

I wanted to take some cookies to my friend but I wanted them to look cute rather than just on a paper plate or something. So I used an empty Pringles tube.



It was so easy to decorate with gift wrap, scrapbooking paper, ribbon and a circle punched from a Christmas card, and it fit 19 cookies perfectly.



Everyone loves a little glitter!

  2. I just did a quick wash inside with soapy water, making sure not to wet the outside, and put it on the radiator to dry thoroughly.

  3. What a great idea for reusing something that would normally end up in the trash! You always have the cutest ideas!

  4. This is such an inspired idea! Wish I had been keeping up with my blog reading over the Christmas break, it'd have been a more elegant way to present my first attempt at homebaked goods to the in-laws than the baking tray covered in wrapping paper to which I eventually resorted :D

  8. Have been doing this myself for a couple years now. I use craft paper or card stock and Mod Podge. It's fabulous!
