YouTube Tuesday-Get Well Gift Baskets

Pin It
Hello crafty friends.  It's Kim from Katydid Cards here with you today to share another video.

This time I used our Get Well Blog Hop as my inspiration and I found these two videos on how to make get well gift baskets.  I don't know about you, but I love making...and receiving...gift baskets.  To me, the basket, itself, is a gift; so everything inside is icing on the cake.

This first video is short and sweet, but provides a great jumping off point for making baskets:

This next video is a more elaborate version of a gift basket:

I think the perfect gift basket is somewhere in between the two.

If you want to create a gift basket of your own, here's a list of items you can include to make it entirely unique and perfect for your recipient.  This is what I came up with in no particular order.  If you have something to add, please share it in the comments.

Fuzzy socks
Soft blanket
Hot-water bottle or a heatable pillow
Fun brain game books and a pen or pencil
(Healthy) Treats
A good book or audio book if they have access to a CD player
And if they do, some soothing music.  Create a modern day mixed-tape! You can make a CD with soothing songs or compose a cheerful playlist on Spotify.
A feel- good movie
Body Lotion, sample size works great
Breath Mints
Hard Candy
Lip Balm
Sample Sized Bottles     
Hand-Held Games
If they will be home recuperating Gift card to Netflix, Amazon or iTunes
Tissue Mini Packs
Art and craft supplies
Flameless Candle
Saltine Crackers
Body Wipes
Chicken Soup Packets & Soup Mug
Dry Spray Shampoo
Stress Ball
Support Pillow
Stuffed Animal
A Picture from Home
A Small Plant, real, silk or dried
A scarf or Shawl

Before I go, I want to remind you about our monthly challenge, "Stamp Your Heart Out".  You can make any sort of a project so long as it has a stamped image on it.  You can find all the details here.

Lovely Day - DT Post

Pin It
It is my day to show off my DT here at Connie Can Crop. This month's challenge sponsor is: RubyMartha

Ruby sent these cute items to work with:

I used them to create this card:

I used colored pencils to color the image which I attached to the front of the darling doily. I ran the twine across the middle of the card hiding my join behind the main image. I used foam pads to adhere the image to the card face.

After cutting out the sentiment I layered it onto the white cardstock and attached it to the card. I also added the pearls to the corner. The only thing I didn't use was the cute little clothespin.

The card came pre-cut it measures 5.5" wide x 4.25" high.

Please come and join us at Connie Can Crop and take part in this month's challenge, "Stamp Your Heart Out". This month's prize is a $15.00 gift certificate to Ruby Martha's online store.
