A Beautiful Last Minute Gift


It’s late in the season.  Money is tight.  There are so many people in your life you’d like to show that you remember them.  You’re thinking a card might just have to do.  Wouldn’t it be nice to something a little more special?


Why not print up some of these pretty gift trays!  They only take about 10 minutes to print, cut and assemble.  Best of all, you can print them on regular ‘ol copier paper (no card stock required!) to save you even MORE money.  Each of these trays cost me only a bit over a penny each to print and assemble and most of that money is in glue sticks!


Well, we know they are frugal, but can they also be beautiful? 
Let me tell you how I filled my trays

  • I used a little plastic wrap to bundle up some cookies (the tray pictured has 6 assorted cookies in it for the dear couple across the street). 
  • Then I wrapped some tissue paper around that and tied it with a spare bit of red ribbon. 
  • In front of that, I placed one of our Hot Cocoa Envelopes only I filled this one with 4 tea bags of assorted flavors.

It’s now ready to head over to our dear neighbors so they know how much we appreciate them.

It’s so quick to put together that it’s never too late for a last minute delight!


Would you like to make this for someone special?  Here’s how to get the printables you’ll need:

Another Gift For You!

I’m so sorry that I haven’t figured out how to make cookies printable yet.  You’ll have to supply that part!  ♥

I hope you have a wonderful, beautiful and blessed holiday!

Cute idea! I have a ream of cardstock. I bet the kids would like making these.

    Shecki, I think they would too! My kids helped me out. Just do the first one with them watching so they can see how it all goes and make sure they know to fold neatly on the lines so it all lines up at the end and they should be good to go! 🙂 Merry Christmas!
