This has nothing to do with a great deal, but I wanted to share anyway! My sons school has a raffle every year and asks for families to donate gift baskets. I found this on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot! If you are not familiar with pinterest, you must check it out, I have gotten so many great ideas from them. But beware, pinterest is very addicting! If you want to become a member just leave your email and I would be happy to invite you!
I bought waffle bowls in 2 different sizes, waffle cones, and chocolate dipped cones and wrapped them in snack bags that I purchased at Michaels. Then I took fun toppings like nuts, gummi bears, chocolate chips, and of course sprinkles and put them in a small snack size Ziploc bag tied with a ribbon. Then of course chocolate syrup, caramel, and strawberry sauce. After I took the picture I added a few more little things such as cherries and wrapped the box with cellophane that I got from the Dollar Tree. I couldn't find any cute baskets around so I took the EMU Australia box, cut the sides and top off and wrapped with a cute paper I had laying around.
When I took the finished box into the school to drop off, all of the office staff loved it. The principle even asked me to make a few more for her! It was such a fun project!
Here is the finished product, the picture does it no justice though!
The other basket that I made was a coffee themed basket. I got my inspiration from the Torani syrup that I received from Shespeaks. For more on that see my previous post!
