Pumpkin Spice Toffee Cookie Recipe & DIY Packaging

Yesterday was super fun for me because I got enlisted by friend Danelle to help pretty up the cookies she baked for a fundraiser at her work. There’s really nothing I love more than to craft, eat cookie dough, and drink wine, which is exactly what we did!

I snapped some pictures to show exactly how we made these packages so pretty, and also to share what is probably the easiest cookie recipe on the planet (and it’s also delicious!). Also, if you haven’t tried the Chocolate Shop wine that is shown in the picture below, you need to do yourself a favor and go buy it! You can thank me later! 🙂

Pumpkin Spice Toffee Cookie Recipe:

1 Box Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix

1 12oz Can Pumpkin Puree

3/4 Cup Toffee Nuggets

Mix all 3 ingredients together in a bowl.

Batter complete!! (Told you! Easiest cookies ever!)

Bake at 400 for 10-14 minutes (depending on the size of your cookies).

I was seriously mind blown at how easy these cookies were. All of the baking powder, flour, and stuff that is always annoying to measure are in the cake mix! So genius.

So, once we had the cookies out of the oven and cooled, we started on the packaging.

I brought over some brown kraft bags, bakers twine, tags, stickers, and a “baked with love by” stamp.

We started by stamping the back of the bags and having Danelle sign her name.

Next, we wrapped 2 cookies in saran wrap and tied them up with gold bakers twine. I recommend doing this with baked goods so the oils and moisture don’t penetrate through the bag and ruin your pretty packaging.

Lastly, we sealed the bags with 3″ stickers, stuck a price sticker on the tag, and tied it on with orange & black bakers twine. Perfect considering the bake sale is on Halloween!

I don’t know about you, but I’d certainly pay $2 for these babies! 🙂 Especially when it’s going to a good cause.

Thank You Kindly Stamp

Thank You Kindly

I actually had this stamp in mind for my own packaging. I designed it to use on all of the packages that are shipped out to my customers. I posted a pic on Instagram, and got some great feedback as well as couple of requests for it, so here it is for you all to enjoy!

 PrettyPleaseDoNotBend1Pretty Please Handle With Care & Do Not Bend

This is the second shipping stamp I designed for the collection. I also use this one on my own flat mailers, because the last thing anyone wants is for their package to get bent in the mail and arrive damaged! Plus, it’s a bit more polite than a traditional DO NOT BEND! stamp 🙂

Made With LoveMade With Love Heart & Arrow

For all of the makers, crafters, gifters, & do-it-yourself-ers!

WeddingArrowWedding Arrow Monogram

Of course we had to add another wedding stamp to our existing collection, and this one is my favorite by far! There is nothing more on trend right now than this crossing arrow design, featuring your initials, monogram, and wedding date. Perfect for save the dates and invitations!

WhyThankYouWhy Thank You!

Everyone needs a plethora of thank you stamps in their stamp drawer. (I have tons!) This is a super fun modern stamp designed by our graphic designer, Allie.

Heart StampsMini Hearts

Plain & simple. Itty bitty. Super cute. Available in solid or outline.

arrowTribal Arrow

Probably my favorite motif right now. Tribal arrows are everywhere and you can use this stamp for anything. I can’t wait to cover some brown kraft wrapping paper in gold arrows this holiday season!

fleurdelisFleur de Lis

A traditional Louisiana motif. Special to me because I married my husband in New Orleans.

xo2Xo

A hand-drawn stamp by our very own Allie. How adorable! Perfect for stamping on snail mail to your BFF, decorating gifts, and of course Valentines Day!

And there you have it! You’ve gotten to know every single one of our new stamps individually. We hope you love them as much as we do!

Each of these stamps are available to purchase in our Etsy shop:
