This basket project was one of those that turned out exactly like I had envisioned. Since this happens so rarely, I was very pleasantly surprised!
I was searching for a cute but usable container for the teacher birthday basket. I was at Michaels picking up a few things and saw the neatest fabric tote buckets 50% off. This one ended up being $8.50.
When I got home, I personalized it with the letter. Paint and glitter, people! That's all it took to make the basket this cute!
Take the paper off and fill in the lines with a few layers of acrylic paint in your choice of color. When you are done with the last layer, sprinkle with glitter and let dry. I used a large, dry paint brush to brush the excess glitter off after it dried completely. Fill, put in a cello bag and tie with a ribbon. Perfect for gift giving!
If I do it again:
Not much to tell here. I might do one thing differently and it's a maybe. . . I might use cardstock as my template instead of regular paper. It is more expensive but probably wouldn't roll as easily when wet.
