NWR help: frosting cookie packaging

OK so totally NWR but my FIL is the cutest. My baby shower is going to be owl themed and we told him we were going to get together and make cookies. Well he works at a local grocery and had them make up some cookies, then brought them home and asked me to come see!

I'm not sure if they wouild plan on packing them somehow, or if i need to figure out packing. 

So I thought I would come ask some of the best party planners I've every met! Any ideas on how to pack these without smooshing the frosting?

(BTW they're going to change up the colors and make some more for me to see!)

 So cute!!! 

Is it soft frosting or the kind that hardens? 

When I made cookies for my boy's Kindergarden class I lined a regular cardboard box with parchment paper, put a layer of cookies in then put one of my cooling racks on top (you'd have to check that the 'legs' are long enough that the tray won't squish the first layer of cookies! I taped little rolls of cardboard to one of mine to make it higher)

I managed to transport almost 100 cookies with only one casualty - which I think was more to do with my gloved thumb that anything else!!

 

If you're thinking of using them as a favor I'd suggest something like this http://www.brpboxshop.com/3123.html

Those are soooo cute!!! Your FIL is awesome!

If you're worried about the icing smooshing, those favor boxes that Canooknic posted look perfect! That's a good site, too. I've ordered from them before. :)

 Love the cookies, creativity and help offered.  But now curiosity has the better of me: how did you come upon the decision to do an owl theme?  What is the significance to you and yours?

Well while registering, it turned out that we registered for lot's of owl/monkey things. So the themese sort of picked itself. We searched monkey and owl themes and I liked owls better. :)
