Isn’t the Target $1 spot wonderful? A few weeks ago I spotted some tiny paper valentine baskets on the bottom shelf. My mind thought that they were cute but could possibly be made cuter.
I purchased two packages of the baskets, each a different design. I also found some darling paper cupcake liners that I planned on using to line the baskets.
Once home I dug through my supplies and found crepe paper, tissue garland, vintage treasures, millenary and velvet.
Of course there were treats to consider. You can select your own favorites.
I played around with the crepe paper and decided it should be ruffled. I used a simple wide stitch on my sewing machine and then just gathered and gathered and gathered….
A hot glue gun is ever so handy to quickly attach ruffles and assorted bits of bliss.
The cupcake liners were placed inside the basket and then filled with red hots and conversation hearts.
While I do like this creation I decided to go one step further. On Wednesday I will show you how to make the second half of a this Valentine “topiary”. It too is delightfully edible.
