My first Basket

knash6February 2, 2003

Hi all! Here is my first basket...put together for a Valentine's fundraiser for a school. I'll need to do about 50 more by the 13th! Yikes!!! ;) Included is 20 rose petal soaps, an Oatmeal honey almond bar, a rose scent scrunchee soap on a rope, two small hand soaps (a heart w/roses and an angel, some rose scented bath salts in a sachet, and a nice soft washcloth. I plan on redoing the labeling a little and adding white tissue paper in the bottom of the basket as filler (it's empty now!). It's in a nice hard plastic white bath caddy. Any suggestions? Is it okay?

Looks awesome to me!! Did you get a mold specific to doing the bath pouf bars? I used a tupperware container and it didn't come out that great...but good enough for me to use!

Kristi! You have inspired me! I have been putting off making baskets for all of my girls for Valentine's Day. I've finally started working on them tonight! Thanks! Your basket is absolutely beautiful! Good luck with the rest of them!

Thanks guys!

Susan- yes...I better get soaping! I hope I can get it dont in time.

Jill- Yes...I broke down and bought the kit at Michael's just to get the form to use. I thought about finding something else to use, but nothing seemed like it would work. This form is great! Just right for the small scrunchees...even better for the new scrunchees with the handle attached to them. (Walmart and target has them) Have ya'll seen those? I like them better, even though they are more expensive.

Lissa- Thanks for the luck sent my way...I'm gonna need it! LOL

I want one--it's a gorgeous basket! I keep telling me I absolutely cannot start learning another craft but soap making sure keeps calling to me!!!! Your basket didn't help, but I love it anyway--maybe I could do that some day.
