I was looking at the gift baskets/boxes in Wal-Mart int he seasonal section...to get some ideas.
I noticed a cute square, wooden basket (no handles) with bath products nestled atop. I noticed a cardboard base obviously to keep the products ontop and giving the appearance of spilling out. And it wa shrink wrapped. Whish I had taken a picture to show you.
Has anyone made these type of gift baskets? I am thinking it wouldn't be too doffocult to make the cardboard base/filler. Maybe purchase the medium size cardboard boxes in the postal setion, cut them to size, bend them into 2 or 3 rows for product to sit on.
Then fill it with either natural or brown shredded paper (as to not clash with my labels and go with the natural theme).
I want the basket to resemble a homemade natural feel, and don't want it to clash with my labels (my avatar is a good example of the colo scheme).
Do you think that the fact that they would not be made in the Christmas color scheme would be a bad thing?
I plan on adding a few cinnamon sticks and a cinnamon-scented, pine cone, possibly on the side.
