A couple weeks ago, my son’s Preschool teacher gave each child a construction paper basket to take home.  The baskets were simple, but adorable and got my wheels turning.

These cardstock baskets would be fun favors for a little girl’s flower power birthday party, a baby shower or even a bridal shower.  Simply dress them up with theme colors, add filling, a ribbon, message and fill them with a fun little favor.  Hang them on a guest’s chair or a cool screen.


Get creative!  For a girl’s birthday, fill the basket with a couple silk flowers and flower jewelry and you’re set.  For a shower, try an edible treat.  Maybe gourmet chocolates or professionally decorated sugar cookie to suit the theme.  I think I may even use these as Tea Party favors.



The large basket was made with 12×12 Scrapbook Paper Cardstock.  The left smaller basket with 8×11 (cut to square) cardstock and the purple basket was the construction paper basket my son’s teach made.  Pipe cleaner handles are used for the two smaller baskets.  I made the embellishment and message with my Silhouette Cameoalthough you could also use a hand-held circle/scallop cutter and then hand write the message.


Have fun!
