Berry nice treat basket and hostess gift



I was trying to think of a good project for a make-n-take and I remembered this cute little treat basket that I had make before and thought it would be fun to make with the Berry Bliss dsp and One of a Kind stamp set.

The treat basket is super simple to make, just start with a peice of 6x6 paper and score at 2" and 4" on each side. Then score each of the corners diagonally. Punch a hole in each of the corners and pull the corners together and tie with some ribbon to create the basket! I made a Halloween one last fall.



I decided to make a coordinating hostess gift with the Berry Bliss paper by wrapping it around a glass jar, adding some embellishments and putting some samples of ribbon inside. I also used the new chocolate chip poly-twill ribbon to wrap around the lid.

Beautiful projects! They will make wonderful gifts and make and takes. I am always amazed at the different ways we can come up with to creatively fold paper! I'll have to try this one.
