Embellished Berry Basket with Jess Mutty

Embellished Berry Basket

 Today I have this sweet little basket that would be perfect for gift giving.  I love these fruit baskets and the ruffled fabric trim so I combined them with a pretty pastel shabby flower for a romantic, country feel.  The wood button and felt doily add another touch of texture.

I used a piece of chipboard sandwiched between two dyed doilies for a small decorative backing.  It looks pretty but it is also functional.  Sometimes I find that I need a little support for my basket goodies. 

And of course you need a nice little bed of something to nestle the contents into.  I lined the basket with a white doily and then cut super thin strands of a glassine bag and scrunched them into the bottom of the basket.  Perfect for a candle, bath items, baked treats, or other small gift!
