Christmas Baskets

I made four of these baskets this year. One for each set of Wyatt's grandparents and one for my dear friend, Mimi (although hers was a slightly different). I'm really happy with how they turned out, and I hope that the recipients were as happy with them.

I picked up these baskets at Michaels, and filled them with my homemade canned applesauce and apple butter, Spice Cake mix, and a plate that was painted by Wyatt and myself. Then I froo-frooed it up with some pretty filler and some organic pine cones and things.I have had this red ribbon for a while and just rediscovered it when I was looking for something festive for these jars. I tied on one of PTI's recipe cards that I gussied up with the Recipe Box stamp set.The plate painting part was an especially fun thing to do with Wyatt. We went to a local place, called Bisque It and painted three of them.

For the labels, I used a MSL apple bunch, PTI's Simple Alphabet and Borders and Corners Circles, and the JustRite Stampers Baking Ensemble. The apple is dimensional.
And one last pic of the goods.
Well, that's about it for now! Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with a SSC card!
