My sister-in-law Jennifer sent me a template for me to use with my plain sticker paper (just use a paper punch when you're done printing). I went to H-E-B and bought $26 worth of Honeycrisp apples, $5 worth of Clementines, and then drove to Hobby Lobby where I paid less than $9 for a cute basket with a handle.
Here are my beautiful apples after being washed thoroughly:
Honeycrisps are so big and delicious! Green stems mean super-fresh.
...and yummy, easy-to-peel California Clementines.
here they are, all finished.
The oranges say "Orange you glad you're my Valentine?"
The apples say, "You're the Apple of my Eye".
This was for the entire staff, or roughly 20 people. A creative, simple, inexpensive gift that you could actually do any time of the year. They loved it!
Here's some free printable fruit tags: http://welovebeingmoms.blogspot.com/2012/04/fruit-tag-printables.html and you can buy sticker sheets from this gal here, for just $8! http://www.etsy.com/listing/91198330/48-naturally-sweet-fruit-stickers-food?
Pin this for next year! You won't regret it. BTW, did I mention I am having a contest next week? I sure am...stay tuned!
