Every Christmas I make cookies for my peers at work. I almost always make our Chocolate Crackle cookies with pecans - they seem to be a huge crowd pleaser.
You may or may not know, but I love TJ's chai tea mix. I drink a warm cup every morning. One day I noticed that the chai tea container would be the perfect container for Christmas cookies. So I started saving them - it probably took me 3 months to collect 8. Yes - I was thinking about Christmas back in September ;)
To start, drink a lot of chai tea. Next tear off the label and rinse out the container. These containers are a thick cardboard, so I couldn't put them in the dishwasher, I had to hand wash them. Allow to completely dry.
I covered the tins with scrapbooking paper. Measure the width and diameter of your tin and cut the paper to fit.
Modge Podge the paper on to the tin.
The paper I used was a little thick. So to keep it in place while it dried, I wrapped hair ties around the tin on top of the paper.
The paper I used was not wide enough in diameter, there was an inch gap.
I just cut another piece of scrapbook paper to size (and used fancy scissors) then Modge Podged it on.
Allow the Modge Podge to set for a day. And remove the hair ties.
I made stickers for each tin using PicMonkey. Center the stickers and stick on.
Now fill your tins with cookies, each tin fit about 5 cookies.
Give out to friends and family!
