Turn four kitchen objects into neat cookie packaging

Planning to give cookie gifts this year? Look to everyday household items for creative packaging ideas

Bakeware is perfect for cookie giving. Look for interesting shapes like this brioche tin, or try a more rectangular shape like a loaf tin.

A mailing tube is ideal for shipping, or giving, flat round cookies. Simply cut to the desired length and fill with sweet treats.

Repurpose a square tin or can (like a tea tin) into a cookie jar by wrapping it with decorative paper and adding a ribbon.

A parchment or wax paper carton works well as a gift box. Remove the cardboard tube, line with pretty tissue and fill with cookies.
