Pack a Picnic with goodies

Hello everyone!  Today I have a picnic basket to show you using Stampin Up Cottage Wall designer paperand some handmade flowers.  I made this basket and all the goodies for a Silent Auction held for Autism Awareness.  I wanted to donate something for this cause and thought that this basket filled with goodiewould be just the thing.  I sure hope the recepient was very happy with this gift.

The basket was made from a third party template and contained a post-it-note holder with pen, a lip balm holder, a bookmark, a triangle box with two pieces of chocolate and a pen with holder.  I bought a box of colored mini pens by mistake and needed to put them to good use. The purple pen fit just right with the orchid opulence in the designer paper. 

The stamp I used for the bookmark, however, is non-Stampin Up.  I purchased a bunch of the clear plastic sleeves for the bookmarks hoping to make some to sell at craft fairs. 

Here is the side of the basket.  I purchaed a large and medium daisy punch and used the instructions that I found here.  A little Flower Soft was used for the center of the flowers.

This basket has so many possiblities for gift ideas using Stampin Up designer paper. How about a baby gift filled with onsies, and baby items. Or how about a birthday gift with bath salts, lotions, etc.  Let your imagination go!

Below is a view of the cover of the basket. The pearls are from the pretties kit. The butterfly, scallop ovals, embossing and the piece under the butterfly are all Spellbinders
