Before we get started on packaging PYO cookies... What the heck is a PYO cookie? PYO stands for Paint Your Own, and has become a very common type of cookie in the "decorated cookie world." The basic concept is that there will be a design on the cookie similar to a coloring book style, and the cookie recipient - often a child - will be given some "paint" to paint in their cookie design. And then the best part... They can eat it! At The Cookie Countess we have made this type of cookie making very easy by providing literally hundreds of PYO style stencils. Using a stencil to create your PYO designs makes the process go really fast and allows for consistency as well.
We also make paint palettes that utilize food color in a way so that with just a little water, you can paint the cookie! They are available in TEN different color combinations! Paint palettes are super easy and fun to use.
Now back to the topic at hand... One of the questions we get asked a lot at The Cookie Countess, is how to best package Paint Your Own (PYO) cookies with our ready made paint palettes. Well, we have the answer!
We sell a number of products that will allow you to pack cute PYO cookie kits that are easy to transport and hand out at parties. They're kid-friendly and totally customizable.
Insert one Edible Paint Palette into a Clear Lip & Tape Bag. This will keep the edible paint from touching the cookie or transferring. Don't seal the bag yet.
Insert a Disposable Paint Brush into the same bag as the Edible Paint Palette. You now have a little packaged paint & brush kit ready to go.
Insert your cookie into the Ultra Clear Cookie Bag.
Place your paint & brush kit bag into the Ultra Clear Cookie Bag. Place it behind the cookie so you can still see the design (kids love to pick their own designs).
Tie the top of the bag with a piece of ribbon or string. Feel free to get creative. You can decorate the bags with hanging tags, stickers, or just keep them simple.
If you like to box your cookies, the poly bags are great to go inside a box as well and help keep the cookies fresher for longer.
We have a great video too of in house baker Wilmalyn doing a live tutorial all about PYO cookies! If you have some time, it's definitely worth a watch.
We have a large and varied fun selection of bag toppers at The Cookie Countess. All designed exclusively in-house! Our bag toppers come in different sizes, to coordinate with different size cookies, so you can customize your packaging just as much as you customize your cookies.
Another fun way to pack PYO cookies - especially when delivering them to a crowd - is in one of our specially designed cube boxes. These boxes have clear windows on all 4 sides to show off your cookies. And then the inside has a special compartment to hold more cookies and/or PYO cookie supplies.
Our cookie cubes come in 3 sizes, to hold from 6 to 36 cookies! The built in handle makes them great for delivering to customers as well.
PYO cookies are popular not only because they are fun for recipient, but they are relatively easy for the cookie maker, and a great product to sell if you have a bakery or are a cottage baker. If you sell your cookies, PYO cookies are fabulous for children's party favors, holiday gifts, or for the activity table at a family get together.
