Berry Basket Gift Idea + FREE Download

Maybe it's the color of these berry baskets that made us fall in love with them. Or their cute little shape. Either one, we knew we had to come up with something fun to use them for.

With Teacher Appreciation coming up and then Mother's Day right after,
we've got a gift that's sure to please.


Supplies:
• berry baskets (we used the pint size, but you can also find the quart size at the tomkat studio shop)
• some strawberry scented soaps, lotions or car scents from Bath & Body Works
• shredded crinkle paper
• skewer
• tag download found HERE
• white cardstock for backing your tag


(the free download comes with tags to use for your child's teacher, your mom, grandma and friends!!)

  25. Thank you for sharing this with us. Its darling. I'm wondering about enlarging that tag and printing poster size at Costco to use on a door for teacher appreciation week. Would that work?

  26. Anyone know where you can buy pint size berry baskets? I bought everything else but I need to make these tonight and I am not sure where I can buy them or who would sell them. Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. People where selling on Etsy for $6.00/12, you can buy in bulk. 250 for $45.00 also just search Berry Basket online. Wish I knew where locally to get them instead of waiting to ship.

  44. This is a great idea! Thank you for posting this. It is my kids teacher appreciation week next week and I will definitely use this idea. We were going to just buy gift baskets, but they can be expensive and I can't find any gift basket coupons so this is perfect thing. What are different berry products that I could put in the basket? Thank you for your help.
