The Lakeside Collection Gift Basket

A few weeks ago I held a giveaway for one of five gift baskets from The Lakeside Collection and mentioned I would demonstrate how to create these gift baskets. Instructions are provided here but below are step-by-step instructions with pictures for creating your own baskets.

I chose the Curious Cook gift basket and once all my items arrived I set them out and got to work!
 Start with the biggest of the 3 Handled Bakers {green}.
Line with a one of the Terry Kitchen Towels. Place the towel inside so that the corners drape over the edges
Stack the next sized Handled Baker {red} inside.
Repeat the same step; adding a towel and stacking the last and smallest baker {yellow} inside.
Now push the red baker forward allowing you room to slide in The Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook. 
Place another red towel within the yellow baker, add the Giftable Breakfast Delights - Fruit Crisp mix {can't wait to try this!!!} and then add the Bread Dipping Set and Gourmet 4 Compartment Seasoning Jar. Use extra towels as needed to prop up these items. Trust me, you'll have plenty!
Add in the remaining items, Stainless Steel Measuring Cups and a Serving Spatula. Again, use the extra towels as needed to prop up items and make the basket look full.
Add on some ribbons and bows and your gift basket is ready to go! Use cellophane wrap to cover the basket for easier transportation.
I had an assistant that was VERY interested in helping me! :) Good luck with your gift baskets!

Thanks for stopping by!

***While I'm thrilled to share my step-by-step directions, the good and the bad, these are intended for your personal use. I'm always happy to hear and see what my bloggers have been working on. BUT a lot of work goes into these creations and while I have no issues sharing so you are able to create the work for your precious homes please understand that selling an exact duplication of my designs is highly frowned upon. :( Please always be considerate of another artists work. Thank you!***
