Mini Muffin Gift Box

I love to bake and often will give away my baked goods to friends and neighbors. An empty saran wrap or foil box is the PERFECT size for a nice row of mini muffins!

What You Need:
  • Empty box from foil, parchment paper, or saran wrap
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbon or string
  • Button, needle & thread
  • Tape/glue
  • Paper napkins


How To Make It:
  • Cut wrapping paper to approximate size for wrapping the box, making sure to leave extra for going inside the box and top flap.
  • Lightly coat outside of box with glue (non-toxic Elmers glue would be a good idea since it will be near food) and adhere paper.
  • Use tape to finish wrapping the box, making sure the paper goes onto the inside of the flap. Also may want to put a strip of tape over the metal cutting edge so no fingers get cut.
  • Glue down one end of ribbon or string to center of top.
  • Sew a button onto the center of the top over the string.
  • Line box with paper napkins and add muffins!

For you other bakers out there, my all-time favorite mini-muffin recipe: Donut Muffins.

  12. If you want to take off the metal cutting part. I usually do when I throw it in the recycle bin...use pliers. It almost always comes off easily, but be careful that it's not too close to your face as it will curl. This is a wonderful idea and I'm trying to figure out what I can make or package in it and who to give it too.

  65. Do something that makes you comfortable, such as a massage while listening to music, which I like. Fill a bucket of water in a foot massager at home, put your feet in, turn on the music, feel the rolling of the soles of your feet, and heal in the music and warmth. Accept the setbacks, get yourself together and start again.

  66. Let's use the production of leather jackets as an illustration. The production of leather jackets is still rooted in ideas of the industrial age from the 19th and 20th centuries, according to the majority of people. In the post-industrial world of today,Leather Products Manufacturers has undergone significant shift. Software and data are being used more and more to drive the manufacturing of leather jackets, which is becoming much more integrated.
