How to Wrap Gifts in Vintage Cookie Tins
Vintage metal tins are budget-friendly collectibles that make wrapping beautiful gifts a snap, and, bonus: can be used again and again. Fill with homemade treats for a tasty gift they won't soon forget.
When recipients are expecting cardboard boxes and paper bags, there’s something special about gorgeous reusable packaging. Nothing’s more nostalgic than receiving a tasty homemade treat in a vintage tin. Scotland-made tartanware containers have become collectible, and when used in holiday gift-giving, the wrapping becomes part of the gift. If a tartanware tin is nowhere to be found, any vintage container can be used in its place and repurposed over and over.

Line the Tin
Choose a color of tissue paper that complements the design of your vintage tin. Red and green are standard go-to colors and pair nicely with tartanware, but incorporating a complementary hue into your color palette can add an unexpected pop when the tin is opened.
Place Cookies in Tin
Set your homemade cookies into the tin. Once the tin is filled, fold excess tissue paper over the cookies and secure the lid. Top with a neatly tied bow.
