Make it in Minutes

Make it in Minutes
Treat your Neighbors to a batch of homemade goodies at the holidays. In many communities, it’s a the traditional way of being neighborly. Present your treats in Roxanne Buchholz’s amazing “Holiday Cookie Bucket” made from a 12 x 12 scrap page, template 37815 and you’ve got a memorable and personalized gift that lets your friends and neighbors know how much you care. The template makes two, so here’s how to make both in moments:

1.    Personalize the template if desired. “From Our House to Yours” can be changed to say “From the Smith Family” or “From Andy and Ann Smith” or any other greeting you’d like to share.

2.    Print the number you need, remembering that each page makes two buckets.

3.    When you send the page to print, request UV coating at checkout to give the labels extra protection from cookie crumbs or grease.

4.    Purchase “gallon size” clear plastic buckets from the craft store or online.

5.    Cut out all pieces using sharp scissors.

6.    Using a tacky white glue, scrapbooking adhesive roller or a glue stick, attach large labels to front of buckets and circles on the lid.

7.    Punch holes in tags as marked.

8.    Using 4-5 inch lengths of ribbon, yarn, inch-wide fabric, or even holiday colored curling ribbon, tie with double knots onto handle as shown.

9.    Fill with homemade cookies and deliver to the neighbors. Yum!
