Make a Gift Hamper

Posted 2013-04-16 by Rayna follow
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.

An example of a big bow


Method
  • 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.

    This is also another type of basket available, one with a handle.
