On my last post I promissed to share a special craft I was creating for the teacher appreciation week. I do apologise for not posting it earlier, but my little son was ill and I did not have the chance to do anything. Thank God he is better and I can share my project.
First of all, I would like to share a few pictures of my little one :), he is 11 months old now. Time flies!!!!
He loves potato, broccoli and carrot puree :).
Love those legs up in the air when we take walks to the park :). That's what we call chilling!!!!!
Back to my special project :). I made a super awesome basket from newspaper. I was searching on google ideas of how to make a homemade basket and found this amazing idea. It is very simple and easy to make, and the result is fantastic!!!
I found a video on youtube that explains really well how to make it. Here is the link of how to assemble the basket: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_pmSdCGnAU
I filled the basket with homemade baking goods. I made bread, cookies and apple sauce. My son wrote a card and we put the paper flowers we created (the previous post explains how to make the flowers).
We gave the gift to three teachers and they all loved it, they found everything wonderful, specially the basket.
I personally loved the idea of making a basket from newspaper because it is totally unique, creative, personal and helps to save the planet. These baskets could be used for any type of gift, for example: Easter basket hunt, Halloween trick or treat, or for Mother's/Father's day. You could fill it with baking goods or beauty products or whatever you find appropriate. The basket usage is infinite.
Hope this post inspired you :). Have a great week!
