This will make an elegant gift but I am not sure it qualifies as a last minute project. Guess I should work it up and see just how long it takes. I like that it works for Christmas but really it could be used for any holiday or party. Make up a few in a variety of colors and you truly have the perfect last minute gift.

I love this idea. I am planning to repurpose this pattern to hold rolls of toilet paper. That will add elegance to our bathrooms.
