Decorated lids for cookie exchanges and pot lucks

You spent all that time baking for holiday parties and cookie exchanges. Why put your goodies into plain storage containers?

Decorated lids for cookie exchanges and pot lucks

Add a little holiday cheer by personalizing food storage container lids with a little card stock and VELCRO® brand fasteners. Just cut card stock leaves using our free pattern and attach to the wreath shape using VELCRO® Adhesive Dots —  I love these little dots because they stick immediately so the leaves and berries don’t slide around:

Then attach the wreath to your food storage container lid using VELCRO® Removable Poster Hangers for easy removal when the party’s over.

Maybe I came up with this idea for to deflect attention away from my very basic baking skills. It’s possible. But I’m sure that *your* goodies inside will look as good as the outside, yes?

I couldn’t be more excited that Jo-Ann fabric and craft stores featured this VELCRO®-sponsored DIY project in its national advertising holiday catalog, right here in the bottom left on page 17:

And here’s the Jo-Ann project instructions flyer:

You can download the PDF here or visit Joann.com and click the green “Download Project” button. (I noticed that the flyer asks you to increase the pattern on a copier to fit your lid, but if you want a shortcut, here’s my wreath pattern that fits roughly a 7″ x 7″ working surface.)

Thanks to VELCRO® brand fasteners for sponsoring this DIY project. And cheers to a memorable, Martha-esque pot luck.
