Hello sweet friends!!
I seriously can not believe it’s almost Christmas and 2019!! This time of year always makes me want to stay in the kitchen and bake everything known to man. Since I usually end up making WAY more than my family and I can eat on our own, we put our goodies in tins and give them out to friends and neighbors.
This year I got the new Polaroid Pop which is a digital polaroid camera so I decided to use the pictures as gift tags on our goody tins.
This camera is so much fun and I’m so impressed by all it can do. Not only can you take photos, videos or GIF’s on the camera but you can also connect it to your smart phone and print pictures from your phone!!
The camera lets you add frames, stickers and even text. If you’re looking for a fun Christmas present, this is definitely a good one!
To make the DIY cookie tins all you’ll need are:
- Polaroid Pop
- Cookie tins (found at Hobby Lobby or any craft store)
- Red and green ribbon
- Hole punch
- Cookies of choice (I used peanut butter cookies and the recipe is below!)
- Print off your pictures for the gift tags using the polaroid pop.
- Punch a hole in the left corner of each photo.
- String the ribbon through the photo and tie it around each tin.
- Fill each cookie tin with cookies and deliver to your family and friends!
