   sturdy cardboard box or empty coffee can
   aluminum foil or plastic food wrap
   paper towel
   tape: freezer, plastic or masking
   brown mailing paper
   
      Bar, drop or fruit cookies can best withstand mailing; tender, fragile
   cookies are apt to crumble when mailed. Use heavy cardboard box, cookie
   tin, or empty coffee can as a mailing container. Line container with
   aluminum foil or plastic food wrap. Wrap four to six cookies of the same
   size together in aluminum foil, plastic food wrap or plastic food bags and
   seal securely with freezer tape; repeat until container is full.  Place
   heaviest cookies at the bottom of the container and layer the wrapped
   cookies with crumpled paper towels around them. Bubble wrap can be used to
   line container and divide layers of cookies. Seal container with freezer,
   plastic or masking tape. Wrap container with an outer paper wrapping.
   Brown
   mailing paper or a cut grocery sack work well. Print mailing address and
   return address on the package in waterproof ink; mark the package
   “Perishable Food” to encourage careful handling.
   
   SHIPPING CANDIES
   Materials needed:
   your home-made candy
   sturdy cardboard box or empty coffee can
   plastic food wrap
   waxed paper
   newspaper or plastic bubble wrap
   tape: freezer, plastic or masking  brown mailing paper
   
        Do not package candies that absorb moisture (caramels, mints, hard
   candies) in the same containers those that lose moisture (fudge, fondant,
   meringues).  Wrap different candy varieties in plastic food wrap and
   divide
   layers with waxed paper. Use a heavy cardboard box, cookie tin, or empty
   coffee can as mailing container with crumpled or shredded newspaper or
   plastic bubble wrap for padding. Seal container with freezer, plastic or
   masking tape. Wrap container with an outer paper wrapping. Brown mailing
   paper or a cut grocery sack work well. Mark the package “Fragile” and
   “Perishable” to encourage careful handling. Me ke aloha,  Mary
