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.

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.
