How to quickly make the cutest decorated gift basket

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a Bowdabra Decorated Gift Basket.

Decorated Gift Basket - Bowdabra

It’s that time of year to get together with friends and relatives to enjoy the holidays.  Sometimes we just want to bring the hostess a little something.   How about giving a small gift to the hostess in a Bowdabra Decorated Gift Basket.  Fill the decorated gift basket with candies, small votive candles, and other items your hostess or hosts would appreciate.  This one is a perfect fall or Thanksgiving treat but you can change the colors of the ribbon for Christmas as well!

Supplies:
Bowdabra Mini Bow Making Tool
Bowdabra Bow WIre-Gold
Ribbon
Basket

Begin by placing an 18″ length of bow wire in the Bowdabra.  Cut a 12″ length of ribbon and place it in the Bowdabra.

Create 3 loops on either side, twisting the ribbon with each pass.  Use the bow wand to push the loops into the Bowdabra.

Fluff out the bow and cut the edges of the ribbon.

I found a nice wicker basket to use, but any basket will work well.  Just use the bow wire to tie the bow to the basket handle.  Then wrap the excess bow wire around a pencil to create spirals for a little visual interest.
