So here's my idea for co-workers, school workers, day care workers, neighbors, etc.
I started with a super easy cookie recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.
Mix up the dough as directed on the package. Roll into small balls and fill a mini muffin pan.
Bake as directed. Immediately after removing them from the oven, press a peanut butter cup down into the baked cookie.
Let them cool (you can put them out on a patio table or garage if it's 15 degrees out and it will speed up the process significantly!) And carefully remove them from the pan.
Meanwhile... I prepared the bags to put the cookies in. I found these colorful lunch bags at my local grocery store in the card and party aisle (Schnucks, if you're a Missourian!) They were only $.25 each! I wrapped the cookies in plastic wrap and dropped them into the bags.
And to close the bags...
I spray painted a bunch of clothespins. These are $.97 for a pack of 50 at Walmart!
I cut some scrapbook paper and modge podged it onto the clothespins.
After that dried I flipped them over and glued a small magnet onto them.
And once that was all dry, I sanded them a bit and rubbed a tiny bit of distress ink to give them some character. Then I clipped them onto the bag.
Now they have a bag full of goodies and a magnet clip for their fridge!
I have a bunch of these on my fridge and they are great for pictures, lists, coupons,artwork, etc!
