Printer-Friendly Holiday DIY Projects Made Easy

If you love creating crafts but just don’t have time, we can help. Celebrate the season with these fun, fast and easy projects from FedEx Office.
One of the best ways to save money during the holidays is to do it yourself — from the food and presents to the decorations. It’s also a good way to make gift-giving more personal. But DIY projects can take a lot of time. And that’s something you may not have during this busy season.

Let us lend a hand. With FedEx Office, you can save both money and time on your holiday crafts and activities. It’s a cinch to deck the halls with these creative projects:

  • Recipe for success. Personalized cookbooks are always a big hit during the holidays. Start by asking family members to email you their favorite recipes, along with the memories they associate with each dish. Combine their recipes and stories into one document, inserting photos from past holidays to dress up the pages. Next, go to FedEx Office® Print Online and upload your file. From there, you can select a cover and a binding, and add tabs to separate the recipes by category. It’s as simple as that — and it will look like you spent weeks on the project.
  • Sweet and savory mix. No time to whip up your own pumpkin bisque or gingerbread this year? Here’s a convenient option: Send jars of ready-to-make mixes with the recipes attached. Nowadays, you can purchase dry mixes for just about any soup or baked good. Or, for a more personal touch, buy the separate ingredients and measure them out in advance. Decorate a canning jar with ribbon and other trimmings, add the ingredients, and you’re all set. You can design the recipe cards with your word processing software, or use one of our FedEx Office® Design & Print Center templates and have them printed on card stock at a FedEx Office location.
  • Lasting memories. If you have children, the holiday season usually comes with plenty of handprint turkeys and paper snowflakes. Why not turn those works of art into long-lasting gifts? Stop by a FedEx Office, laminate your child’s creation and — voila! — you’ve got an ornament, wall hanging or placemat. Or, scan the artwork and upload the digital file, using the image for magnets, notebooks and other stocking stuffers. FedEx Office also offers finishing and binding for customized photo albums and scrapbooks.
