MaddieLynn made up a chocolate chip cookie mix in a jar and a walnut brownie mix in a jar. We printed out the instructions in red ink and I bonded it to some leftover red gingham fabric and tied it on with raffia. I also included a spatula, timer, an oven mitt and hot pad, and one of my famous oilcloth aprons. (See my sidebar to purchase your very own!)
I googled "gift baskets" to find out some helpful tips in making it look nice. One of the most useful tips was to build the basket up with filler to make the gifts stand above the rim of the basket. I used Styrofoam in the bottom and covered it with netting.
To finish it, I wrapped it in white tulle and tied it with a white bow at the top.
