A Fresh Use for an Upcycled Berry Basket

The special issues from Paper Crafts magazine have always been my favourite and I’ve bought them faithfully for many years. So it was a treat to me, after having projects published in the monthly magazine, to be published in my first ever special issue, Holiday Cards & More, which released just last week.

I had saved a big stack of cute cup-size clear berry baskets cause I just knew I could create a treat package from them. Using a mix of Spellbinders dies, I made an embellished band that slips over the basket, and the whole package ties shut with a soft ribbon. Pretty, and a great way to share a few cookies with a friend.

The entire issue is full of great Christmas cards, tags, decor and gift ideas. Why not grab a copy from a local retailer or using the link above?

  1. Great minds! I have been tucking these little beauts away too. Much to the regret of my two adult kids (28 & 25)…they think the show hoarders has a place for me. Shame they just dont see the beauty potential. I guess the truth is in the getting the job done and not just stacking things about huh?
    I love the trinket box and think hung the other way up they could look sweet as Christmas decorations holding gift cards and home-made coupons etc.
    Thanks for the continued great ideas.
