Another PAP

PAP is Pack A Picnic.
It's a template that I bought from PTI, its here to buy for your self. Trust me well worth your $5.

I made this basket into a tea cup of sorts. It has a handle and no top, that makes it somekind of pitcher or cup.

I made this for a girl that is new to the area, and we met over lunch one day last week. I made some home made "Coffee House Cookies". I got the recipe from Lauren Meader, check it out here. They are super yummy. And I'm sure not so great for the figure. So I made up all that I could and packaged them in smaller baggies, and froze the extras. That way I can just pull out a small bit of cookies, and we wont eat dozens at a time.

But anyway, I put these cookies in a cello bag and put it in my basket for my new friend.I also added a bag topper, with some scalloped circles, and stamped images from TAC.

When we were eating someone came up to the table and asked where we got the gift bag. LOL

I told her I made it and she was so amazed. She asked what I made it out of, and I told her its just scrapbook paper. She said it looked like something she would buy. That was awesome. Totally made my day.

This time I used regular 12x12 paper from CTMH. And the backside was a lite pink color, so when I folded the top down it was a different complimentary color. I also went around the folded down edge with a fiskers punch to create a lace look. And instead of making the basket handles, I used the handle template to create the handle on the side. These are so much fun to make and super easy. I hope you will give it a try and let me know, leave a link to yours in my comments section.



Totally awesome Brandie!
I love it.
You are a freakin' genius!
