Bake Sale Packaging: Cute Ideas for your Homemade Treats

Bake Sale Packaging: Cute Ideas for your Homemade Treats

Bake sales are an American classic. Delicious, homemade, melt-in-your-mouth treats made by caring members of the community. There really is nothing better. But what really sets bake sales apart from simply going to a bakery are the creative bake sale packaging crafts that are seen time and time again at these events. From colorful plates to intertwined toulle, bake sale packaging should always look as good as the treat within.

Paper Plate Box

This bake sale packaging idea will transform a plain, inexpensive paper plate into a cute and creative box for your homemade goodies. All you need is a white paper plate, scissors, tape or glue, and some twine of your choosing. As the picture demonstrates, you simply need to cut four lines into the sides of the plate, fold the sections over each other, and then glue them together so the box can stand on its own. Amazing and perfect bake sale packaging for cookies, cupcakes, or muffins!

Upside down cups

This is some of the simplest yet most creative bake sale packaging you could possibly stumble upon. Purchase a pack of plastic drink cups that come with lids. Then, using sharpies, stickers, glitter, or anything else that piques your creative mind, decorate the plastic cup. To seal your baked goodies into the cup, place the treats on the lid, then put the cup over the lid and press down to seal.

More Paper Plates

Paper plates are a staple of bake sale packaging due to their versatility and usefulness. This paper plate bake sale packaging will help form a small basket that is perfect for cookies or breads. Once again, you will need a paper plate, scissors, tape or glue, and any other decorating tools like sharpies or stickers that you would like. Cut a total of four lines, two about an inch apart, and then two directly across from those lines. Fold the paper plate on the dotted lines, and then glue or tape the folds together. After this, the creative license is passed on to you and you can decorate this bake sale packaging however you please.

CD Packaging

Who even listens to CDs anymore? We aren’t sure, but we do know that those paper CD holders make for some great bake sale packaging when it comes to cookies. You will need paper CD holders, twine, and any labels you would like to affix to your bake sale packaging to personalize it. This one is just about as simple as it can be: drop your round cookies into the paper CD holder and then use colorful twine to seal the packaging. The cookie can be clearly seen through the clear plastic portion, and the twine adds a rustic vibe to your bake sale packaging.
