A Gift Basket

I need to do something special for an upcoming birthday. I made this basket tonight and I'm thinking I'm going to put in a gift card for a book and to a favorite restaurant, a couple of little things I picked up that are a joke between us and some chocolate treats.

I've been wanting to make a basket just for the fun of it and with Memorial Day coming and BBQs and picnics, it seemed like a great time to make one. The basket measures 4 x 6 x 3.

There isn't any stamping on this. I used confetti tan cardstock and sponged with creamy caramel ink. The brads are vintage. I'm not much of a glue person so I used the red tape. The top uses the top note die from Stampin' Up!

My next post will be for the Operation Write Home blog hop that is happening on Saturday. There are 148 bloggers participating.
