A Sweet Treat Gift Idea & Free Printable #pressnsealhacks

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Glad, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #pressnsealhacks http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Hello! Good morning! It’s summer! One thing we like to do each summer (really anytime!) is to surprise our neighbors & friends with treats! It’s so fun to leave them on their doorstep, ring the doorbell  & then run away or take some treats to church & surprise them that way. Last week my daughter took these sweet treats to the other girls in her young women’s group at church. They were so easy to put together, & Glad Press’n Seal made the perfect little packages to hold our cookies. ;) Everyone knows that Glad Press’n Seal is great for keeping food safe & fresh, but it can be used for so much more than that! (Be sure to follow the hashtag #pressnsealhacks for more ideas!) So keep reading for a Sweet Treat Gift Idea, & I have a free printable for you! So you can make these, too. :)
