Gift Basket

I told you yesterday that I was working on a basket project. I said I would post it whenever I finished it up. I decided to post 2 pictures of it. The first one is below with the gifts inside of it.


The second picture below has the gifts outside of it. I wanted you to be able to see what was in it. The card I made for the sketch challenge this week goes along with it. Now I have to wrap it up in some cellophane. It should be good to go.

In case you are wondering, I designed this basket myself. It may be similar to someone else's, but I actually made my own pattern. I wanted it to be big enough to fit the card inside. Guess what? It fits, but it would get smashed. I have decided I will just put it on the outside behind the basket.

I hope you get some inspiration to create a basket yourself. It is not hard to come up with your own pattern.

One more thing. I used the parisian breeze specialty paper from Stampin' Up! I really wanted this all to match. Even the candy is brown (raisinets, in case you are wondering). The matchbox has 2 fun size packs of M & M's in it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Have a great day!! Now go create something. You can do it too!!!
