Last year I gave my 4 coworkers a bottle of wine from a local winery I like, to make the gift a little more special I made tags to decorate the bottles. These two tags or similar to the ones I made, you can add a piece of ribbon or a bow to make the bottle look even nicer.
Snowflake Tag Supplies: Bazzill Snowflake Chipboard, Imaginisce Snowflake, Making Memories Metal Snowflake, Silver Brad, Chalk Ink
Steps: Paint the sides of the chipboard snowflake; layer the other 2 snowflakes and the silver brad. Decorate the top part with little silver bells and leafs.
Here is another one.
Bingo Tag Supplies: Jenni Bowlin Mini Bingo Card, Red Cardstock, Poinsettia flowers, Brads, Pins
Steps: Cut a tag shape out of the red cardstock. Add brads to decorate the center of the poinsettias. I layered the bingo card on a sparkly piece of paper and made a little bow on the pins with silver twine to give it a little shiny touch.
One of the advantages of making your own gift baskets is that you can add products that the person you are giving it to is actually going to use. These are for my sister in laws and they both have colors that match there personalities.
First buy the items you are adding to the basket, and then look for a basket or in this case a metal container that will fit all the items in a way they can be displayed. Decorate your basket with ribbon and Christmas ornaments or embellishments.
