Have you gotten on board the macaron crazy train yet? These beautiful little pastries are not only delicious but when paired with a sweet little gift box, can make anyone feel special! I love the idea of giving this to your high school kid who has maybe grown out of punny Valentine’s Day gifts. They may not appreciate the adorable packaging but they’ll definitely enjoy the macarons!
You can buy pre-packaged macarons at a specialty grocery store but I highly suggest you purchase them from a local bakery. You’ll be supporting a small business while receiving amazingly fresh and delicious pastries. Win/win for everyone. Check out Belle Sucre Bakery if you’re in El Paso and need a macaron fix!
As for making the gift box, I used the Bakery Box Die Cut and some pretty scrapbooking paper (which just happened to look like big overlapping macarons!) to make the box templates. The Evolution Die Cutting Tool and Genius Platform make it super easy and quick. Don’t forget to add the cut out die (included in Bakery Box Die Cut) to the center panel so that everyone can see the pretty little treats inside!
Use a Sticky Thumb to quickly and easily apply adhesive to the side and bottom tags. You’re almost done but why don’t you go ahead and take a little break to “taste test” one of the macarons…I won’t tell. 😀
Add the sweet little macarons and that’s it! The perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the (always-difficult-to-shop-for) High Schooler in your life!
You can even take the extra piece of cardstock that was punched out and make a quick “You’re Sweet!” gift tag. You add pink baker’s twine and the cuteness level just shot through the roof! Hope you enjoyed this quick Valentine’s Day Macaron Gift Box idea and at the very least, got to snack on a macaron or two! 😀
