Sadly, it was late at night by the time I wrapped it up, so my pictures of the basket before it was wrapped did not turn out so well. Our indoor lighting requires my camera to use its flash - which always creates poor photos for blogging.
But I did manage a couple featuring the basket tags shown here along with the wrapped results and I am sure you can see some of why I enjoyed the whole process!
TWIN TAGS 4 TWIN GIRLS
Features Stampin' Up!'s Two Tags and Big Beautiful Butterflies Big Shot Dies
plus retired stamp set, Cute as a Bug
The dollar store penny candy jar decorated with another butterfly
from the same die, and Three Flowers Punch. I really felt that the design looked
good 'off-set' - just a little different :)
Here's the side view showing how we filled the jar with baby socks! Since I took off the
large stickers and labels from the socks, I made little circle tags with our 1" circle punch to
show the sizes as we included 2 different sizes.
Of course, had to do the inside lid! Same Cute as a Bug set!
Now here is another nifty thing - I coated the cardstock with a protective top coat of artist's medium gloss - that way, Mom can wipe the jar lid to keep things clean!
Here is the basket and the jar - all ready to go!
Butterflies decorate the basket handle inside, and so it was natural to use a butterfly as my outside tag!
It reads " Expecting Love"
I hope you have a chance to make someone a gift basket AND with some humble items to create your DYI packaging - your gift assemble can look really top notch!
