I fell absolutely in love with Mel's adorable basket pattern and couldn't wait to make one! Mel is amazingly talented and if you haven't checked out her blog you should (run, go now!!!!) She is full of really great ideas and I have learned so much from her! Hiya Mel!! : ) She is one of my sweet SBS2 sisters!
I downloaded this template from Mel's blog and covered it with one of my favorite printed papers from Mike's! I love these flowers! I tied an Old Olive ribbon around the handle and made a little tag for the bottom to give it a little flair of interesting! I stamped the sentiment and the flower from Stampin Up!'s Fresh Cut Notes set and bent out the petals a little bit. I added some pink sparkle and there you go! I filled it with a clear baggie full of peppermint patties and tied that with a pink ribbon! It went together very quickly and has limitless possibilities for gift giving!
Speaking of which...Christmas is going to be here before we know it! I am soooooo NOT ready!! It is time to start getting holiday organized! I am working on a project to help me do just that! I will be posting that as soon as it is finished! : )
Hope that you have a wonderful day! : ) Be back soon!
