2- Open a sandwich-sized Ziploc bag and open the top as widely as possible so you can spoon in the frosting without getting too much on the sides of the bag.
3- Using fingers and gravity, move the frosting into one corner of the bag. Please watch the video if this is confusing.
4- Once the frosting is in one corner of the bag, twist the ziploc bag at the top and hold it tight. leaving about an inch from the twist, cut the excess off. Again, please watch the video if this is confusing.
5- Using a small rubber band, tightly close the Ziploc baggie with the rubber band. Set the mini piping bag in the box.
6- Set 5 cookies arranged nicely in the box.
7- Spoon one heaping TBSP of holiday sprinkles which is about .4 oz into the box.
8- Place the lid on top.
