Does anyone have a source for small cardboard boxes that would be appropriate for small batches of cookies?  Something somewhat festive?  Yes, I’ve Googled, but pulled up thousands of web pages selling prepackaged food boxes.  I so far can’t generate a focused enough search to pull up the sort of thing I have in mind.

Thanks for any ideas.

I buy from a company called Unger in the midwest - their website is http://www.ungerco.com or you can see if Pfeil and Holing in NY have anything (they have a minimum order, and will charge shipping to residential addresses) they are at http://www.cakedeco.com  The quantites might be more than you can use - most of my cookie sales are at Christmas and Passover (for macaroons) so a box of 250 or so from Unger lasts me about a year or two.

Hi Charles,

Sweet Celebrations (formerly, Maid of Scandanavia) has a nice assortment of boxes in various sizes, including candy boxes with glassine windows so you can see what’s inside. Google “sweet celebrations” and you should be able to find their website right away.

CHARLES T:
  Good afternoon to you Charles. If you have one of those cheapie novelty stores in your city like a .99 cents store…they have now & then what you described. Also Charles, they also have now & then decorative tins of all sizes. I use those tins to gift cookies in to special people. I also tell them if they have no use for the tin do not throw it out you would appreciate it if they would save it f& return to you. So far I have not received one back.
  I hope this post may be helpful to you.
Good luck &  Happy Holidays to you Charles.

Sadly, Sweet Celebrations has gone out of business.  :(

Wow, what a bummer about Maid of Scandinavia! I had no idea.

Charles, check out Etsy.com. Just search under the “supplies” tag. You will find dozens of really interesting options. For example, here’s one search I did.

ETA: The Container Store also carries lots of cookie boxes this time of year. That’s where I went a few years ago and stocked up. We’re still working through them.

Hi Jeanne, thanks for your reply.  The ungerco site is “under construction” and cakedeco seems to have only cake boxes.  :-(

Site is “closed for maintenance”.  Thank you, though.

Yes, I see some things that might could work.  Thank you!

Keri:  The key piece of information you gave me was the correct search term:  kraft boxes.  This brought up a lot more relevant hits on Google than what I was searching for.  Thanks!

Hi Jen, yes, papermart is what I found when I googled for “Kraft Boxes”.  They do have a wonderful selection and I found several items which will meet my needs.  I’ll take a look at brp, too.

Thanks
