Printing off labels
If you like the labels in the picture, you can print them off here. Simply cut them out and fold each one in half across the dotted line. Staple to the top of a small cellophane bag.
Making your cookies ahead
Make up to 2 months before if freezing, or up to 4 days before if using straight away, and store in an airtight container. You can package up to 4 days ahead if you're using airtight packaging, like bags. If you're worried about guests with allergies, it's a good idea to list all the ingredients on the label.
All the packaging we used to present our favours is easily available on the high street. Head to the haberdashery section at John Lewis for ribbon, string, parcel labels and butterfly clips. Visit Confetti stores, or shop online at confetti.co.uk, for all boxes, bags and lollipop buckets. Our cookies are wrapped in medium cellophane bags (45 x 85 x 220mm), £4.99 for 50.
