You know how much I love good gift packaging and with Christmas right around the corner, it’s the perfect time of year to load you up with as many handmade packaging ideas as possible. This little felt tray is really simple way to give handmade goodies to friends and family.

The stars of the show here are the stiffened felt and the Heat n Bond Iron On Adhesive that I picked up from Joann Fabrics. Together, they make this project completely “no-sewable” which is a dream for crafters like me to wait until the last minute to assemble gifts!

I’m partnering up with Joann’s to share this easy gift idea with you as a part of their #MakeIt GiveIt campaign. You can win a $100 gift card to Joann Fabrics by simply posting your holiday craft project onto Instagram using the #MakeItGiveIt hashtag. Easy. You have until December 25th, so start sharing! Joann’s will pick 5 winners and announce them on December 30th. You can check out the official rules here. And as a bonus, all entries will be featured on the Joann Fabrics  Make Gifts Merrier Holiday Hub!

So let me show you how this is done:

Easy Stiffened Felt Tray | Damask Love

Easy Stiffened Felt Tray | Damask Love

  1. A hot glue gun – as always, I use THIS one
  2. Stiffened felt in your choice of color
  3. A ruler – I love my Martha Stewart foldable ruler
  4. Heat n Bond Iron-on Double Sided Adhesive
  5. Scissors
  6. A black marker
  7. Quilting Fabric in your choice of pattern
  8. (not pictured) you’ll also need thin ribbon for this project. I opted for a gold, glitter ribbon for an added bit of holiday glamour

Easy Stiffened Felt Tray | Damask Love

  1. Cut a 9″ square piece of felt and use your ruler and marker to draw lines on each edge as shown
  2. Use the hot glue gun to adhere ribbon at each corner as shown
  3. Adhere a square of quilting fabric on top using the iron on adhesive to bond the two layers together
  4. Pinch each corner to bring the ribbon together
  5. Tie the ribbon at the corner
  6. Repeat this at each corner to make a tray

You can fill this little tray up with yummy homemade goodies and the presentation is perfect. If you’ll be transporting these, a cellophane wrap will help keep things in place.

  1. What a marvelous and quick (hopefully) basket!

    Hope all is well and that you are home with your “new addition”! 😉

  2. Love this idea. I can do that! I’ll be making some for gifting. (P.S. Are those baked goods the Bisquick pinwheels that take me back to my childhood? I can’t find the recipe my mom used!)
