    • Dust Pan Cookies

      coupon myths-dustpan1.jpgSeveral 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


      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.

      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.
