The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012 is in full swing, with just under a week left before signups close. If you are a food blogger and would like to participate, please visit the cookie swap homepage for full details and to sign up. As of 4pm on Tuesday we’ve got a whopping 433 participants signed up from 9 different countries (check out the chicklet counter over there to the right for an up-to-the-minute count). Can we match last years’ 625 participants before signups close on November 5th? Help us get there! Spread the word, tell your friends, put an official swap badge on your site. Remember, aside from the fact that you’ll get 3 boxes of delicious cookies (!!!), you’ll also support an incredible cause.
This year we decided to have a bit of fun and offer up some adorable printables. If you’d like to adorn your cookie packages feel free to use these stickers, hang-tags, or mailing labels to jazz up your boxes.
To use, simply download the printable files and print them on to cardstock or blank label paper. Cut out the shapes and go crazy.
Full sheet sticker paper is available at most office supply stores as well as Amazon or OnlineLabels.com. Sources for other materials I’ve used in these example packages are baker’s twine from Divine Twine and chocolate brown bakery boxes from MrTakeOutBox.com (just a warning that you have to order 250 of these boxes. Your husband will not be happy about it. But just think, you’ll have cute boxes for years to come!)
If you’re looking for tips for shipping your cookies be sure to check out my Cookie Swap Packaging & Shipping Tips post from last year’s swap. Julie will also be posting updated shipping tips later this week, so stay tuned!

Hi! I was wondering if you will be working on making the 2015 ones? :)
Hi! Do you have any printable PDF labels/stickers for this years cookie swap? Thanks!
Working on some new ones and hope to have them posted next week! :)
I participated in the cookie swap last year and signed up again this year. Did you send out our cookie swap partners yet? I never received anything. Please advise!
Hi Shari – I’m not seeing you on the list, which likely means your subscription was not confirmed and/or payment not completed, so you were not included in the match ups. Unfortunately it’s too late at this point to add you but definitely get on our notifications list for next year!
Just printed the mail labels out and I’ll be shipping my cookies tomorrow morning.
Got my sticker paper – I’m back to print! Thanks again for designing these, I’m excited to package up my cookies tomorrow. :-)
Looking forward to this- making said cookies this weekend!
These are great! I am so excited about this!
What a wonderful idea! I can’t wait to print these out for my cookies. Last year the boxes I sent out weren’t as cute as what I received so I’m getting creative this year!
I can’t wait to see the cookies everyone comes up with!
I’m so bummed I missed the deadline! I really wanted to participate this year! I can’t
These will really make my boxes that much more special — thanks!
No puedo ver el pdf, no puedo descargarlo.
I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s cookie swap!
I’m so stoked about participating in this! Bravo to you two!
I love this idea! I’m so excited to participate for the first time this year. Thanks for organizing such a fun event!
Ah ha! That’s what I wasn’t doing. “save link as” ! That did the trick!
Am I doing something wrong? I click on the thumbnail, but nothing opens up, I R-click to download anyway, and all I get is the thumbnail. These are great. Help!
Click on the thumbnails, they link to the PDF files. Or right click and choose “Save Link As”.
I’m super excited about participating again this year, but I think I’m a dork…. I couldn’t find any .pdf files. I right clicked and was able to save the printables as .jpeg files, though.
Right click and choose “Save Link As”. The images shown are just tiny thumbnails, but they link to the PDF files.
DOH! Thanks for the help, Lindsay!!
I’m really looking forward to participating :) Your tags and stickers are so cute too!!
I am so excited about this! I read all about the Cookie Swap last year but my blog-in-the-making didn’t qualify yet. Being able to participate this year makes my blog feel officially launched :) Thanks for creating a venue for food bloggers to connect in such a fun way!
Thank you for these lovely printables! Can’t wait to use them and participate this year.
Such a great idea!
I am so excited that I discovered your site thanks to how sweet it is. I am now in great debate with myself about if I should do it! I really want to join, but we will be packing up the whole house and moving, it might be a little too much. What a great cause and I wish you all the best!
Love it, they’re amazing!
These look terrific! Can’t wait to get baking…and shipping!
Woo! I’m so excited!
Count me in! I can’t wait :)
LOVE these!!!!! :)
This sounds like so much fun, and I love the print-out tags!
Oh my these are cute! Even better would be to make the box as well. I make mine from recycled cereal boxes!
