Hint: a few pieces of strategically-placed cellophane tape stretches the food storage wrap to the back to create an attractive gift.

Attach a printable Dust Pan Cookies gift tag, or create your own tag by handwriting the poem below:

Dust Pan Cookies Poem

While baking you some cookies,
there was knocking at the door.
As I jumped up to answer it,
the pan fell to the floor.

I stood among the cookie crumbs
and wondered what to do.
The day was late, the time was short,
I had no gift for you.

I bent and swept the cookies up
into a small dustpan.
A friend like you, I told myself,
would surely understand.

The gifts that matter most in life
are those the heart does send.
With that in mind, I give to you
these cookies from a friend.
