I have a brother who is fond (i.e. addicted) to chocolate, and a girlfriend who loves to bake. So we thought we'd send Dan some chocolate brownies and chocolate chip cookies by post. Whilst Heidi was busy baking, I made up a traditional crate-style box to put them in, then we filled it to the top and screwed the lid down in case the postman got peckish. It's made from reclaimed timber with leather hinges and has his address stamped on the top, military-style.
I'm sure I'll end up making more of these Brownies Boxes or Cookie Crates - they'd be great for sending a birthday cake too, or a present for someone special. I mean, who wouldn't want one of these turning up on their doorstep?
