- paper plates, any color or size (you can use plastic plates, but they’re MUCH harder to punch)
- craft or hole punch
- ribbon, craft ribbon or curling ribbon
- a great imagination
Once the ribbon has been through each hole, make sure both ends are even to tie it together in a bow
Now fill them with some of your favorite treats and they’re ready for family and neighbors and teachers and mailmen and friends!I usually have a little supply on hand to fill with goodies when someone drops by. We sit down for tea and I fill a little plate of cookies for them to carry home.
If you would like to get really fancy you can fill with cookies or treats place one plate on top of the other and thread them closed. When you are set to tie your bow add a gift tag laced through and you are all set! This is a great method when little guys are carrying a holiday gift to school for their teacher. The goodies stay inside and clean!
PS: Yesterday as I was leaving comment on T's Daily Treasures (if you haven't met her, you should visit. A sweeter gal there isn't on this planet) I told her that these plates were cute as a button. That got me thinking - I'm going through my button box for some cute ones to add to the plates - or how about checking out JoAnn's for some Christmas buttons to add to the ribbon edges? Oh heck, just let your imagination run wild! It's good for the brain - keeps it limber and young☺
