I went to the thrift shop and got a couple of cute baskets.
I didn't pay much for any of the baskets and then went around the thrift shop to find little decorations for in the baskets.
I got most of these decorations for $1.00 each between the thrift shop and the dollar store.
Got the poinsettias for .50 and thought I could use those to cut apart and decorate the baskets. I just loved this cute little plate and had to have it.
Then I went to the amish bulk food store and found all kinds of really neat stuff that was very inexpensive. I had to repackage all of the bulk stuff into smaller bags and tied a pretty toole bow on each after rolling them in baggies and taping them shut. I had fun picking out the stuff they like.
Here is what I came up with
I think this one came out cute, Alison found a cute santa mug and paid for it with her own money for in the basket for grandma.
This one has bells that hang on the door knob, they were $1.00 at the dollar store.
They all came out so cute I did a few more as gifts. The ones that had to be shipped I wrapped in paper and just slipped them into a box with newspaper all around.
Merry Christmas Grandma and Grandpa
