Can anyone help me? Our favors will be delicious home-made whoopie pies which are cake-like cookies with vanilla marshmallow creme sandwiched between them. My problem is I don’t know how to package them attractively. They are 3-1/2 inches in diameter and about 1-1/2 inches thick. They will be wrapped in plastic wrap but I want to put them in something decorative to make them look attractive. All the boxes and bags I find are either two small or too big!
Any suggestions???? Quick! I’m running out of time!

I’m not sure if you’ve found a solution yet, but you’re right — those dimensions are hard to find!
I’ve actually been keeping an eye out for you these last few days, and while it’s not exactly cheap, I found these wonderful wire strawberry baskets. You could easily wrap the whoopie pies in plastic and set them inside the baskets, then if you want you could tie a ribbon or something decorative off the handles.
In the same vein and surely much cheaper is if you could find the green plastic baskets that you buy strawberries in at the supermarket. Not as much of a keepsake as the wire baskets, but functional and they could be fun to work with as long as you’re not turned off by the color 🙂

Check out papermart.com — the site has tons of food and favor boxes that might work!

I really like this idea from Martha. Little bags decoratied with a custom rubber stamp. I’m sure you can find the right size online or even at Hobby Lobby/Michaels. Here is the link to the site:

Similar to the post above but you could also see if CD paper sleeves would work. You know, the sleeves that have a clear cellophane so you could see the inside. I’ve seen this before but can’t find a picture right now… ill see what I can find!

You mean the bags like the Doubletree Hotel cookies come in!
These ones from PaperMart come in different sizes, and you could easily stamp a cute saying on the front, stick the back shut, and call it a day!
I do like the fact that whoopie pies look super appetizing, so I would probably be happy with a clear bag from Michael’s like these: The Wilton ones are sold at Michael’s and I think are about $2 for 25 of them

Or you could put monogram stickers on them front of the wrapper, round stickers that is.

Others have suggested Michael’s (don’t forget to print out a coupon) in the Wilton section, or you could try http://www.com they have loads of bags and boxes.

http://www.clearbags.com/boxes/crystal-clear-boxes?p=3 This is a great site for cute bags and boxes in bulk. Add a little monogram or date sticker and you’d be all set. The favors sound delicious, btw.

I love your favors. They sound delicious! I think whoopie pies are the next cupcakes.
Have you considered tiny half-pint square or hexagonal berry tills with handles? Like a small version of what I use for my welcome baskets (pictured). You can get these baskets super super cheap.
