I keep decorative containers around so they are available when ever I bake cookies and other goodies. We can't eat everything I bake, so I am always giving the extra to my friends and family.  These containers offer a nice presentation for any cookies, bread, muffins, candy, or cakes and I don't have to worry about where my good containers are.  Here I used an empty Gatorade bottle and added a few touches to make these cookies stand out.  These would be great for school parties.  Let me show you how to make them and wow your receiver.

Step 1: Supplies

  • Several small home baked cookies
  • 1 Plastic bottle
  • 1 Ribbon 12 inches long
  • 1 Pen
  • 1 Colored marker
  • 1 Large button or embellishment for the lid
  • 1 Small scrap of foam piece
  • Scissors
  • Pinking scissors optional
  • Glue and glue gun

Fun idea! It looks like an ornament!
Thanks for commenting and do have a great day!<br>Sunshiine
I know it's been pointed out a bunch of times already but these are incredibly cute! It kind of reminds me of those little jars that have a penny in them because I was wondering how you got those cookie through that opening lol. I have a question though, does eating the cookies mean the jar has to basically be destroyed by ripping the bottom off to get to them? :( It's so cute I don't think I would be having any cookies if this is the case.
The bad news is: yes you must destroy the bottom to grab the delicious cookie. The good news is . . . it only destroys the foam bottom as long as you don't use a very good glue. All you need to do is slightly trim off the area where the foam might have stuck too hard and re-make the foam bottom. Then glue it to the bottle after the good are in the bottle. This has to be done anyway, because you can't insert anything in the bottle that is larger than the lid. The glue gun has many advantages. I like to use it on crafts that might be thrown away , so I can re-use the parts. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! May you day be bright and cheery!<br>Sunshiine
Yeah...I guess it COULD be reused and that makes it a little better. It's still like one of those &quot;too pretty to eat&quot; type situations and I would reluctantly break it open and then gobble down the cookies haha.
I hear you! That is funny. Have a nice night!<br>Sunshiine
<br>This is cooler than seeing a fawn being born!!!! :)<br><br>I love this idea!! TY for sharing Ma'am!!!<br><br>I don't celebrate the holidays, but this is a great idea for Ramadan or for EID (pronounced EED.... like seed but no &quot;S&quot;).<br><br>AWESOME!!<br><br>I saved this one.
Thanks so much for sharing James. I always appreciate your comments. Did you see we got snow?
snow? what is snow? I haven't seen any in so long that I have forgotten what it looks like... LOL<br><br>Aye, I saw that...lucky you.
It garnishes my yard as I write. We have a whopping 4 inches and it is still snowing! I hope to post some pics maybe. If you look at the bottle cookies I have 2 pics there. Yeah I hear you about not seeing it. We have been in a drought. <br>Gnite.<br>Sunshiine
What an adorable way to give cookies, great packaging!
Nice use of a recyclable-- And cute to boot! Love it!
Thanks so much. They did turn out pretty cute. My husband liked them. He just shakes his head at me all the time. He asked me the other day where do you come up with these ideas. That was when I made a tiny sugar bowl from a bottle. So funny.<br>Have a super day!<br>Sunshiine
Thats very clever!
