• Dust Pan Cookies

    Several years ago, when I was still in the Craft Show scene, I made about 25 batches of cookies and created these lovely Dustpan Cookie Gifts. I was shocked at how fast they sold, they were a big hit. Here are the directions and free printable tags for this simple yet useful novelty gift idea.

    You'll Need:

    • Batch of Freshly Baked Cookies (or if you're in a pinch, some store-bought holiday cookies)
    • Brand New Dustpan (Dollar Store Dustpans are perfect), washed & Dried.
    • Cellophane (any color)
    • Ribbons

    Attach a Tag with the following Poem:
    While baking you some cookies,
    there was a knock at the door,
    as I jumped to answer it,
    the pan fell to the floor.

    I stood among the cookie crumbs,
    wondering what to do,
    when I saw my broom leaning against the wall,
    and suddenly I knew!

    I bent and swept them up as quickly as I could,
    and rushed them to your door just like a good friend should.
    By Liss Burnell

    OR

    I was in a hurry,
    'Cuz time was running out.
    I'd baked a batch of cookies for you,
    And when I turned about,
    I saw they'd fallen on the floor.
    It made me want to shout!
    How could this happen at this time,
    When time was running out.
    I couldn't throw them in the trash.
    Whatever could I do!
    I quickly swept them in this pan,
    And rushed them off to you.

    Or

    I was baking some cookies
    When they dropped on the floor.
    So I scooped them right up
    And rushed them to your door!
    Merry Christmas From Our House To Yours!

    Arrange the cookies on a New Dustpan, cover with Cellophane & a bow, attach one of the poems listed above. This makes a super cute gift for anyone with a sense of humor.
