|Embellished Berry Basket|
Curtsey Boutique Designer
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!
