Alright, probably I'm the only one who thinks this is funny... but who cares? =)
While writing an answer to a discussion over at Nice Paper Toys i came up with the spontaneous idea to create paper cookies. While the first version was a more complicated model (sides in a more complex shape) i thought about my recent discussion concerning papertoys and function. So i came up with the idea to create paper cookies that serve as a casket for one larger cookie to be given as a gift. The bottom is blank, so you can also write a small message on it. The casket looks like a cookie itself and you could also just use them as paper cookies. There're large flaps that serve as a "open/close mechanism" for easy access to the cookie content.
"Sometimes me think what is love, and then me think love is what last cookie is for. Me give up the last cookie for you."

I changed the shape to a simple one as this will make it very easy to customize your own cookie in about 15 minutes. Just take a picture of your favorite cookie and customize one (download the blank template) - if you do, please post it here. Wouldn't it be great to be able to use a bowl of several different paper cookies instead of those ugly wax apples?!? ;) I created two cookies for the start... looking forward to see more.
cookie casket "chocolate"
cookie casket "colors"
cookie casket "blank"
