Baking Bread Basket

I needed a bridal shower gift and I came up with this:
This is a filled bread basket.

The basket is an inexpensive wire bread basket.  I added two cloth napkins as liners.  These are two 17x17 pieces of cotton that have been finished on all four edges.  I put in a "bread helper" from Prepared Pantry (one of my favorite sites!!) and two jars of my homemade jam.  I also added a small container of local honey and a beautiful, vintage silver plated jam spoon I found at a garage sale. 

Wrap it in cello and you have a gorgeous, fun, functional and inexpensive gift to give!

If I do it again:

I attached a card AFTER I tied the bow.  I would attach the card first so the bow's ribbon hides the card ribbon.  It's a little detail but it bothers me.
