Easter Basket Fun

I like to use containers for my Easter baskets that are unique and can hopefully be reused by the recipient. I found these baskets with net lids at World Market and decided to use them for Amby and Nathan's Easter baskets.

The purpose of the net is to protect your food from insects and other various uninvited dinner guests. There will be no flies on those Cadbury Mini Eggs.

Nathan likes honey in his tea, so I got him some for his basket. I found this cool burlap bag at Paper Works. I wrapped the honey in tissue and tied it with a rope.

World Market also carries two of their favorite sauces. I found this carrot tissue paper at Pier One and wrapped them in it, then put them into clear bags.

I got Amby some jewelry and put it in a drawstring bag I found at Michaels.

Here they are, ready to be packed and mailed. I hope they like them.

I'm delurking... (or maybe I have before I don't remember) anyway - I'm with you in getting a "basket" that can be used. My three girls got great hobo style tote bags filled with goodies. Thanks for all of your clever ideas.
