Fruit Trays....really?

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Today, I wanted to share something that I think makes a cute gift for the holidays or even any holiday for that matter! When we still lived in Joplin, I started saving these plastic fruit trays that strawberries & grapes come in. I had no idea what to do with them and one time I even used it to package cards in to send back to my old neighbor, Emily. It kept the cards protected from the bouncing around that comes from shipping and because you can decorate them, it made for a cute gift too!

I decided to make a bunch of these in all shapes & sizes for the holiday craft show this year! 

Your probably gonna ask me what I put inside of them. I seen people put cookies, cards and candles in them. I made my White Chocolate Snack mix and placed in a cello bag and put inside. I also put some smell good candles in them too. You could put almost anything inside of them as long as it fits. I was thinking candies or homemade fudge or a variety of different cookies for the holidays! The possibilities are endless!
These are just a few of them for now! I'll share the others later!
All of these are made with Stampin Up stamps & supplies.

Well, that is all for today!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
