Mother's Day Gift Inspiration

This week at Cooking with Cricut, the Design Team wanted to give you some Mother's Day Gift Inspiration.

My mom often takes treats to work to celebrate a birthday or as part of a potluck or sometimes "just because".  She is as sweet as some of her treats and she always puts thought and love into whatever she makes.  Now she can take her treats into the office in style AND as an added bonus easily identify which containers belong to her! 

Secret confession......I thought of making one that said "DO NOT TOUCH" or "NOT YOURS" <insert EVIL grin and menacing laugh here> for those times that the treats have to go into the unguarded refrigerator. 

 This is a sectioned "chip & dip" container from Wal*Mart. 
A tub of dip (ranch, french onion, cream cheese whips, caramel, etc.)
fits perfectly in the center.

This is an "Ultimate 3 in 1" Cake Caddy from Hobby Lobby.
Purchased using a 40% coupon!  I *heart* coupons!!

A gift wouldn't be complete without a matching card.

  1. I really love this gift idea! It's super cute and handy. I may just scrap lift this one!

  2. Wow I love the vinyl on the carriers. So darn cute and a great way to find your things at potlucks. I have a couple weddings coming up and think this would make great gifts also. So personal! Great idea to make a matching card.
