I scream, You scream...

Gift baskets are so fun to create, and they make fabulous gifts. For one of my best friends and her children, I made an icecream sundae basket. Her children and small - 6 & 3, but I didn't want to get them toys since I know they will be showered with them already this Christmas. Sometimes, consumables are the way to go... :) And besides, what is better than icecream?

I found a fun metal bucket and some cute polkadot bowls and then gathered up my toppings. To dress things up, I made tags using Papertrey Ink's Sweet as Can Be Stamp Set and Tag Sale #1 die. For the bucket tag, I used Winter Penguin, the Damask Snowflakes Dies, and the tiny icecream cone from Tag Its #4.









Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Sweet as Can Be, Winter Penguin, Tag Its #4, Paper Smooches Sugar Rush (for sprinkles on the icecream cones)
Paper: PTI Stampers Select White, Kraft, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Royal Velvet
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa, PTI Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart, Pure Poppy, Tea Dye Dyo
Dies: Sweet as Can Be, Winter Penguin, Tag Sale #1, Doily Details, Damask Snowflakes
Other: Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst, Royal Velvet Satin Dot Ribbon, Paper Smooches Twine, Rhinestones, Pop-Dots, Sakura Stardust Pen, Glossy Accents
