Pastry boxes

BackBayGirl Dec 2, 2006 06:32 PM

Just wondering if anyone knows where I could buy some pastry boxes. I was going to make some pastries, cookies, etc, for some holiday gifts and thought it would be cool to put them in pastry boxes and tie w/ string. I assume I could hit any of the bakeries around, but wasn't sure if there was a store around that carried stuff like this.

    Craft stores also have them - try the baking aisle at Michaels.

      Does the paper supply in JP have quantities of less than 100? That might make it worth a trip from here on the frozen North Shore. Sigh, this so makes me miss Verna's cake decorating store that just closed. I know Eastern Bakers doesn't have them in the store. If you just need a few, a craft/party/Michaels/AC Moore would probably be your best bet.

        I've found take-out boxes at The Container Store in Chestnut Hill near the Mall. You could call or check their website.

            Many of the party supply stores carry them in myriad sizes-inc. the store (party goods?) on Waverly Oaks in Waltham. I think Big Party does, too.

              The place at Waverly Oaks is called Party Needs, and I've seen these boxes there in the past. I like the Container Store the most for cute packaging for cookies, etc. but this year I hit AC Moore and got a great deal on patterned tins.

              BMS paper supply on washington street in JP sells by the box. YOu can also try perkens supply, I think they have a warehouse in watertown.

                I'd imagine that Eastern Baking Supply in the North End would carry these.

                China Fair in Cambridge might too...I'd call both places first to check.

                  Williams Sonoma sells personalized boxes but they are quite expensive.
