Cookie Boxes: New Packaging :)

Here's my new and exciting packaging. I decided sets of cookies in a box would be ideal for Mothers Day. I already have orders for seven boxes! Yippee.



I still have to work on packing the cookies in there snuggly without using too much of the crinkle paper filler.....so I'm going to try using tissue paper as a bottom layer. I have 2" deep boxes....and that is probably too deep. But now I have FIFTY boxes....so it will be a while before I can order more shallow ones. lol

This box idea is limitless.....there are so many sets you can put together for lots of different occasions. I can't wait to try it out in each season. :)

I love these cookies, and the boxes look so neat! The matching ribbon just adds to the look...

Pam, I have been looking for these boxes for a long time, can you share where did you get them? I would love to buy them in bulk.
Thank you so much

Lyndsey said...

Yes, Pam, please share if you dont mind! I've been looking for these as well, I think they are awesome! Thats wonderful about your orders. God is good :)

Pam said...

Thanks ladies. :)

I ordered here:
http://usbox.com/Boxes/2-Piece-Stationary-Boxes-Vu-Top-Display-Boxes/1LV

I bought 50 of the 10x7x2. But if I had it to do over again....I'd order less than 2" deep. It is hard to fill all that space.

I warn you that the freight is expensive! Even though the boxes are a nice price, the freight adds a lot.

I ordered 50 stationary boxes and 50 pizza boxes. The order was $70 but with freight cost it ended up being $108.

Plus.....of the 50 stationary boxes, 14 of them were damaged....not severely, but damaged none the less. The company credited me for the 14 boxes, so that was good. And I used some of those for my samples this weekend.....so it all ended up being fine.

It's kind of scary to take the plunge and buy something like that. But I LOVE these boxes and all the possibilities of sets I can make....so I'm glad I did it. But it's an investment, for sure. :)

Pam, I too was looking into buying some containers to deliver my cookies and cookie cakes in. I found a place today where I could get both for a great price but the shipping was $80.00. Ouch. So I checked ebay and found the pizza boxes with shipping for 7 something and I found another place to get the other containers that I wanted. And the shipping on them was 15.00. Much better then what I was looking at. Glad you found what you wanted and they look so nice!!!

I use these as well for my cookies .. and I love them..I get them from a local store. I agree...less than 2 " deep..because mine are the same size as yours and it takes a LOT of filler!! Love your Mother's Day cookies Pam!!

Pam said...

I'm just curious, Laurie. Which local store do you get the boxes, and how much do you pay for them?

Pink Little Cake said...

Thank you so much for tha information, that is very nice of you.!

Whimsy Cookie Co. said...

Hey Pam!

They have a website..bakingstuff.com and they are around $1.09 per box. The name of the place is Mary Carters Decorating Center..LOVE it!! I am always like a kid in a candy store!!

Pam said...

Oh, I would love that store too, Laurie. That's a good price on the boxes, if they are the same ones as I ordered. With shipping, I paid about $1.15 per box.

Hey Pam,
Beautiful cookie as per usual. I often come to your blog for inspiration for my cookies :-) Thanks for being so generous.
Have you checked out the sight papermart.com?
I have ordered various things from them for years and always been happy. The shipping is a little pricey, but I don't think as bad as what you paid.
Once you start taking the "plunge" and buying things, it gets easier to buy things as you need them. I finally ordered six-pack containers for cupcakes and can't believe it took me so long to do it!
