Before You Start
In 2002 I designed a mini ornament box for the holidays as a sort of gift to site vistors. I thought I'd do the same this year with this mini printable fruit crate in 1 inch scale.
Unlike many of my other printables this one is ready scaled to Windows printers so Windows users should not need to make adjustments. Those on Mac will have to decrease print scale to 75 per cent.
Oranges were once a special and expensive treat for the holidays and often found their way stuffed into the stockings hung by children.
Very wealthy families like the Duponts of Delaware built special conservatories to grow citrus in cold climates just so the fruilt could be given as gifts.
The Dupont Orangery and
other wonders can be visited at Longwood Gardens in my home state of Pennsylvania,
USA, near the DE/PA border. The grounds and glassed gardens are
especially wonderful decorated for Christmas.
