The creation of each basket begins with a piece of paper... followed by a series of decisions as to size, pattern, trimmings and accents. Since only upcycled paper is used each completed basket is a unique, one of a kind item. Each item was created with much care and attention to detail.
Baskets can be used on a desk/table to contain little things or given as a gift. I use mine as a lovely gift packaging/containers for my homemade jar sauces, jam and cookies. As such, the baskets are a wonderful memento which remain long after all the goodies are gone!
In addition to containers for gifts the baskets also make very pretty planters for little plants.
Several layers of acrylic sealer are applied to the basket for protection and durability which make them water resistant but not waterproof. Just remember to line the bottom of the basket with a little saucer or plastic before placing the plant into the basket and always water the plant outside the basket and let it drain before placing it in the basket..
I hope you enjoy this basket as much as I enjoyed making it!
