The best way to build relationships could be as simple as bringing some freshly baked goodies to work or gatherings. There is a saying in business that says presentation is everything, so why not make a nice gesture into something that will really make a lasting impression.

If there are some leftover paper plates, ribbons and office supplies then you have everything you need to make these adorable paper plate holders, and it will only take a moment of your time.
