How to Make a Christmas Cookie Tin
You can print this label at home, or head to any print shop and they can do it for you. Just make sure that the type of label paper you use aligns with the type of ink the printer uses. I went to Staples; they sold the paper needed on site (inkjet).

Using a circle cutter, cut the paper to fit your cookie tin to size. You can of course use scissors, but the circle cutter will give you a much smoother finish. Remove the backing from the label paper and stick in place.
From there, fill your tins with cookies and bring to any holiday gathering for your host! To add an extra bit of Christmas cheer, used patterned waxed tissue paper to help build layers between cookies, especially if using multiple flavors. That’s all there is to it!
If you’re hosting instead of visiting this year, you can also make these tins for your guests to fill with cookies as a souvenir. Either way there will be cookies and everyone will be happy!
