Cut slits into the circle and weave your satin ribbon through. Place on top of your covered cookies and you have a beautiful gift for neighbors or to bring to holiday parties!
Use a decorative pair of scissors to cut your cookie cover 1-1/2 inches larger than your platter. Draw your design using a wash-away or brush-away marking pen.
Decorate however youd like! I used YLI Metallic ribbon and some spare beads to create this snowflake.

Create a one-of-a-kind cookie plate cover for the cookies you distribute this year.

You'll need:

  • Felt
  • Pinking shears or decorative-edge scissors
  • Wash-away or brush-away marking pen
  • Thread, beads, etc. for embellishing
  • 1/4-inch-wide satin ribbon

To begin, cut a circle from felt that is 1-1/2 inches larger than your cookie plate. Try using a pair of decorative scissors to create some texture/embellishment along the edges of the cover.


Cut a circle 1-1/2 inches larger than your cookie platter. Use pinking shears or some other decorative edge scissor for a cute touch!

Embellish the top of your cookie plate cover however you'd like. Use a wash-away or brush-away marking pen to draw your design. For this one, I used white thread and beads to create a snowflake! Once you are done embellishing, cut 1/4-inch slits in the felt 1 inch from the edge and approximately 3 inches apart. Weave a 1/4-inch-wide satin ribbon through the slits.


Embellish however you'd like! I used YLI Metallic ribbon and some spare beads to create this beautiful snowflake.

Place the cookies on your plate, cover with a small piece of plastic wrap (we don't want the felt fuzz getting into the cookies!) and then place the cookie cover on top. Gently draw the satin ribbon so that it gathers the cover around the edge of the plate and secure with a bow.


Weave your ribbon through the slits you've made around the cookie cover, and tie in a bow.

I made a dish cover following directions in a book coming out in April (I was sent a review copy ahead of time) by the Farm Chicks. Here's a post about it from my blog:
