Christmas Treats

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

I made some Linzer cookies for my family this year with customised boxes and Christmas cards. :) Initially, I wanted to design a range of ninja cards like before but didn't have time so everyone else got robin ones instead.

The completed boxes were printed on card and then cut/scored to shape before I folded them into place. I traced over a box my dad saved for me and changed the seal from heart-shaped pieces to holly leaves on Adobe Illustrator. Each side contains a short message which eventually reads, "Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year | Best Wishes, Naomi xxx".

The recipe for the cookies can be found here. They're delicious!





^ The original box followed by three prototypes and the finished product.
To the right is a plain alternative 'cause I ran out of blue card and
the brown one was too thick to go through the printer. ;(



^ The Christmas cards and customised 'sliding' envelopes.
I was in the process of designing my new logo whilst making these
so the ninja ones have the old one on the back....the Mitten Bop is no more!
