Hampers make great gifts for a variety of special occasions; weddings, bridal showers and baby showers to name a few. The great thing about them is that they can really be personalised with little individual things that can make one spectacular gift.

Chose the contents. This is a baby hamper and toiletries were used. You could make a fruit hamper, accessories hamper, crockery hamper the possibilities are endless.

Chose your materials in accordance with your chosen colour scheme.

Fold the tissue paper several times and cut off thin strips to make the tissue filling.

Open out each strip and add some of them to the base of the basket. Keep a few strands of tissue for later.

Position the basket so that it placed on the centre of the cellophane. Arrange the basket with your chosen contents.

After all the contents have been placed in the basket add the remaining tissue strands for presentation.

The card can also go inside the basket if you wish.

Pull up the corners of the cellophane and tie it together using the big bow. You may need to seal any gaps in the side by using sellotape.

Now the presentation can be personalised. I added a few strands of blue ribbon to complete this hamper.

There is plenty of room for creativity for the materials used; the type of basket, colours, ribbon size and contents can be changed.
