Tis’ the season for gift giving. And what better gift to give than something baked fresh from the oven?!
Chocolate chip cookies are one of our families favorites. So this year we will be giving fresh baked cookies to neighbors and friends. To dress up our serving dish, we’ll be decorating a plain paper plate with some holiday ribbon, a project that is perfect for my kids to help with. From start to finish we’ll work together as a family, baking our cookies, decorating our plates, and delivering our goodies to friends and neighbors.
Here’s how we made our fun ribbon wrapped plates:
Supplies for Ribbon Wrapped Plates:
- paper plates
- hole punch
- 2 feet of 3/8 inch ribbon, per plate
- cookies from Pillsbury
1. Punch holes into the edges of your paper plate about every 2 inches or so.
2. Thread your ribbon through each hole of your paper plate, starting at one hole and finishing at the same hole. There are a few ways to wrap the ribbon around the plate. You can either stitch it up and down or around and around. Both styles give your plate a fancy new look.
3. Tie off your ribbon once it’s been threaded through each hole. You can tie it in a bow or a tight knot. Trim your excess ribbon.
4. Add your baked goodies to your plates and they are ready for gifting.
If you are making these plates with goodies a few days ahead, make sure to wrap each plate with tinfoil or plastic wrap to help the baked treats stay fresh. Enjoy!
