Packaging ideas for homemade French macarons

Jpan99 | Feb 27, 2012 10:04 AM

I'm getting an early (yes very early) jump on Christmas gift giving ideas. I've made homemade chocolates for the last three years but I want to do macarons this year. I've got a few months to perfect my recipes but I'm not finding a lot of packaging options online.

I do like the plastic sleeves that show off the colors but wondering if there are other ideas or places to look to buy the sleeves. I found one website that sells cardboard boxes with a sleeve with a see through window which is ok but you can't see much. I don't want bags because the product is too fragile.

These would be for handing out, not sending anything through the mail. Anyone have any ideas?
