Gift Baskets for Craft Show

I made 4 gift baskets for a craft show on May 2 at the Peterborough Publich Library.  I used the Berry Basket die to make the baskets and I put the lining on the outside, using the Painted Blooms  DSP.  Each basket uses a different pattern from that design pack, and all the contents that I made use the coordinating paper and the Painted Petals stamp set.  I only made 4 because they are very labour intensive and each basket and contents takes a long time to do.

 For each of the baskets I made a multi layer flower using the colours of the DSP on the basket.  I used a combination of 2 dies:  The  Flower Frenzy die and the Bouquet Builder die.  This was attached at the base of one of the handles.

Contents include:  Post it Note holder with pen, Wine Tag, Note card in Envelope, Gift card/note holder, and a magnetic frig holder plus another small gift.  The baskets don't hold as much as I thought.

Once finished, each basket was wrapped in clear cello wrap, and a coffee filter rose was adhered to the top.  Then a die cut butterfly with a large rhinestone on it was adhered to the rose.

A tag, made using the Banners framelits, again with a coordinating DSP piece on it, was attached to the outside of the basket.

Now to start making some more items to sell.

Any local followers, come and see me at the Library.
