Berry Basket gifts

Good morning! This summer we ate a lot of the local fruits, especially berries. Yumo! These berries came in the standard green plastic baskets and I was thinking how can I alter them and use them. Well I came up with this Altered Berry Basket Tutorial so they can be put to use. Several of these will be going to the auction and I think a few to my neighbors. They are super easy to alter and make darling little gifts. The Power and Spark challenge this month is all about gift and giving too. Check it out and play along! 


Here is a close up of the basket with the matching tag. All the tags are the same except maybe altering the base colors. These snowflakes are Snowflake Trio-Die light that is retired now, but any snowflake will work. Loving my new Dual Dotted Rectangle Dies! Layered them on some kraft tag die that has some matching gingham paper. My sentiment is from Poinsettia that has a fish tail tag. A few jewels as accents.   


Here is a close up of the berry basket. I think it turned out super cute. I added a button and twine combo to the outside snowflakes to tie in the tags. Voila! Hope you have a few baskets you can alter too.  :-)

Oh, Stacy, you are so clever, and I love how you see something and think, "I can use this for a gift somehow!" I love it! What a great idea, and I love the baskets (hopped over and check it out and pinned it). What sweet gifts these will make, and I know they will be a hit at the auction. I love the snowflake gas and the great Christmas sentiment from the Poinsettia set. Another great post, my friend! Hope you have a great weekend! Hugs!
