Christmas Cookie Boxes

Hi everyone! Yes, I'm still alive......I'm sorry I haven't been updating my blog but my sister and I were in a car accident and we had to go to physical therapy three times a week. I'm somewhat recovered now but sitting and crafting is fairly hard on me. I have been crafting a little and I have pictures to share but some of them are from Halloween and I'm not too sure if you all want to be seeing Halloween stuff when it's already Christmas! Lol! I'll probably post them later just to add them to my collection of stuff.

Anywhoo.....Since this is my kids last week of school before Christmas break I had to get started on Christmas gifts for the teachers. Since I haven't been feeling much in the crafty mood lately I was stumped as to what I would make this year. A while ago I stumbled upon this awesome recipe for Almond Shortbread Cookies and I figured I would bake some up for their teachers. Try this recipe, I promise you'll love it!

Next I needed to come up with some pretty packaging to wrap these babies up in and I came across this Cookie Box Template from My Favorite Things. Here is my take on the box:

I'll be back later with more crafty Christmas gifts. Have a great week!
