GIFT BASKET by Angie Gutshall

Supplies: Cut Up Cartridge Trimmer (90713) – Trimmer, Summer Breeze (36013) – Mayberry, Sweet Splash (36023) – Mayberry, Berry Blossom (36012) – Mayberry, Mayberry Dimensional Embellishments (85673) – Details, Mayberry Large Decorative Tags (85666) – Bits, Mayberry Cardstock Sticker Book (42396) – Remarks, MayberryCardstock Sticker (42400) – Remarks, Mayberry Puff Sticker (42397) – Remarks, Mayberry Value Pack Ribbon (58877) – Ribbon


First I started off using the American Crafts Trimmer to score some paper. I love this trimmer – it is so smooth and cuts like butter!
After I scored the paper I fan folded the paper to look like this:
Then I took a pair of scissors and cut the long pieces into tiny fan folded stripes. I will place these in the pail as a decorative packing around the gift.
I then took some of the pretty ric rac ribbon that is in the Mayberry ribbon pack and placed it around the top of my pail.
I took one of the premade Mayberry tags and added a few dimensional embellishments to it. 
For the front of the pail I layered some of the Mayberry chipboard and cardstock stickers. And you will notice at the bottom I also added some more ribbon from the Mayberry ribbon pack.
Here is my finished gift! I added some nail polish, top coat, a file, Burt's Bees lip balm, and BB lotion. I thought this was a perfect gift to give a friend for the summer!
I hope I have inspired you to make your own "friend" gift!
