Capture these delicate symbols of winter's beauty in dough, and share them with your wedding guests. Gingerbread cookies, piped with royal icing and highlighted with sugar and nonpareils, are perfect snacks for the post-reception ride home or the day after the wedding. Package them in clear acetate containers banded with ribbon and a quilling-paper label (ours reads "A love like no other"), both held on with double-sided tape.
It's sew simple: Cut a rectangular strip of fabric to the desired width (allow for a half-inch seam on both sides) and twice the preferred height. Fold the fabric in half with the right sides facing, stitch up the sides, and turn the whole thing inside out. Use pinking shears to finish the top edge, and fill with treats. Fashion ties out of fabric that's been torn on the grain.
