A Special Cookie Plate
No, it's not a cookie plate you'll find in any kitchen store, but it's so special at this time of year.
If you're doing a lot of baking to give as gifts, consider decorating your own cookie plate.
OK, so mine aren't cookies - they're chocolate chip mini muffins - but that's beside the point.
Pick the sturdiest plate you can find and then grab your hole punch. You know, that one that will open a little wider and punch a little further than the others.
The space your punches, starting with the ones at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. Then add more in between until you have enough to weave your ribbon through. You'll want to choose an even number, like my 12 here, so both ends of the ribbon will end up on the same side of the plate.
I used two different colors of ribbon and intertwined them. You can do something similar, choose a different fiber, color of plate and style. Then just slip it into a big, flat baggie and you're ready to go!
