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.

  13. 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.
