If you know me well, you know that I over think everything. Often, I get an idea and it spirals out of control until it is so big, and such a production that I don’t have the energy to do it anymore. But if I can get out of my own head, I can simplify things and not lose the intention behind it. Take for instance, sweet treats. I love sugar. And most other people do too. But I don’t need to spend days baking special treats to show someone my appreciation or love. Store bought treats are there for me, ready to use. While they might be a little plain for my liking, all it takes is a moment to jazz them up and put a little “me” in it.
Your local grocery store’s bakery section is an untapped resource. For real. Mine has a crazy amount of baked goods, decorated cakes, cookies, and even accessories (the coolest candles and sprinkles!) So why not embrace it and take some of the stress off of yourself. And guess what else? These things taste amazing!
I decided to pick up some goodies and give them a little repacking makeover. All I needed was some cardstock and Duck tape to get me started. Super easy.
I used plain cookies and then picked up other supplies at the store to create individual cookie decorating gifts. For no other reason than to make someone’s day. But of course these would work as Valentine’s too. But guess what? The store also has frosted cookies! Instead of these kits, you could just pop the pre-decorated cookies in clear cello bags – letting their cuteness show through. Even easier.
