Smart Cookie – Teacher Appreciation 2011

I found this great post for weddings– however I wanted to do another Smart Cookie for teacher appreciation week.  SEE OUR OTHER COOKIE POST.

I loved how this looked like a cafe cookie. Very classy!

I made the cookie recipe the wedding website suggested. I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to make sure I had 1/4 c of chocolate chip dough. Baked them for 20 minutes as they suggested. They came out amazing!!


I used computer CD sleeves.  To put the cookies into. However– I did notice that the butter in the cookies made the cd sleeves discolor. I didn’t like that. Like grease marks. So I ended up putting my cookies in a clear baggie taping it in the back and then slipping it into the CD sleeve.  Pretty much double bagging it. But that is fine. I just didn’t like the grease marks showing up on my cd sleeves.

I then printed out my tags on 8.5 x 11 Label Paper. I used  Avery 5265 Shipping Labels in my Ink Jet.

Using scalloped scissors I cut around the outside of the stickers.

They are so fun looking!!

These cookies are unbelievable HUGE!! YUM!!

Slipped my cookies into the cd and added the labels. That’s it. Easy peasy!

I personalized the tags so it had my childrens names on it.

I will definitely do this again for other events because it is fun.

I remade the labels with the inspiration of the wedding website in Photoshop. Adding the You’re One Smart Cookie on it. And some other fun colors you may be interested in other than brown.

Here are some more fun colors. Thank you Intimate Weddings for your wonderful idea, recipe, tags, and inspiration.

    What a great idea — using CD sleeves for cookie envelopes! Definitely filing this idea away for future use! BTW – thanks for the printables too!

    I love your labels!!! I’m planning a sun themed party for my niece and had decided to use the CD sleeves to package sun shaped sugar cookies. I was searching for a creative ways to close it and came across your labels. Do you customize colors and text?

    Absolutely wonderful. I have just found your site and the labels look wonderful! Have never really done crafts before, but this looks good – and I use a computer a lot!!! Tell me, how do you put your children’s names on the other side of the label (did I mention I had never done this before!!) Anyway keep up the good work – will be following you for other great ideas!!

    Where do you get the CD sleeves? May seem like a silly question to some of you, but I have never had to buy them so I’m not sure where to find them. I want to do this for my little sister and brother’s teachers! So easy and cute!

    Thank you, thank you so much! I’ve been sick this past week and tomorrow is the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week. The Cricut is NOT coming out at 6pm to make tags. I’m putting the labels on cookies from the store but it adds a nice touch of personalization.
    A very happy Mother’s Day from one very appreciative mom.
