I fell in love with this dress-shaped vase from Ross and then I found this perfect basket/purse! I loved the two and knew I had to figure out how to make it into a really cute gift!
I decided to go with the altoid "Office in a Box" idea seen here on SCS (Thanks for the idea!) I found the mini calculator at Staples for .99, little gel pen was found in party-supplies at Walmart, the little notepad was cut a bit smaller to fit one of those great clipboards (which I also trimmed and sanded to fit). I put magnets on the back of the clipboard to keep it in place. Then I thought little clips and paper clips would be perfect - it all fits inside and closes nicely!
I covered a calendar and then made one of those 3x3 notecard holders (the one that looks like a purse) and added two notecards and two envelopes. I'm trying to decide what else to put in here - might not add anything else.
I just have soo much fun finding stuff at Ross or some other discount store and then going from there to make gift baskets! Thanks for looking!
