Semi-Homemade Christmas Gift

I thought I would participate in Maman Tattoo's McLinky today.


She's sharing gift projects made for under $15. Check out her website for the rest of the awesome ideas.

I'm trying to do as many homemade gifts as possible this year. I always try to get something small for my aunts and this year I decided to make them recipe cards and pair it up with a set of wooden spoons.

Here's the recipe cards.

This is super simple to do. I just created a text box using Microsoft office. The fonts were downloaded from kevinandamanda.com. This is an awesome website. They have some great free downloads and great tutorials. So far this project has cost a whopping nothing. What's better than that.

I found a set of three wooden spoons at Gordman's for less than $2. I am planning on printing at Kinko's just because of the paper choices and they will cut them. I am signed up as a preferred customer and I don't expect it to cost more than $10. I plan on punching holes in the cards and tying them together with ribbon I already have (purchased at Hobby Lobby during 50% clearance. I think I paid $1.50 for the roll.) And that's that. Super easy and I think its kind of fun. Now they have personalized cards to write down all their favorite recipes. I considered putting my favorite recipes on the cards but I thought that blank cards would be better for my aunts.

Cost Breakdown:
card design-free
printing- less than $10
ribbon- $1.50
wooden spoons (3 pack)- $2.00

I pretty excited about these. I received something similar to these during a bridal shower. I thought the idea was excellent. Hope you all enjoy it.
