Little Gift for the Little Gardener

I think everyone loves spring, don't you? Everything is new and shiny again, and the flowers are so pretty popping up everywhere. How fitting that the new adorable accessories for the Button Bear are gardening tools! For my project today I made this adorable little gift basket using the Lifestyle Crafts Berry Basket die, cut from die packaging -- I love using the plastic packaging in unexpected ways -- and the sweet little watering can from this set. The paper rose embellishment is perfect for this spring themed gift for grandma's little garden helper.

A leaf makes the perfect gift tag for this presentation with the sentiment, Happy Spring, by My Creative Time, Teeny Tag Greetings.
I tied a pair of child's gardening gloves with the same gingham ribbon I used on the gift basket, tucked in a pack of flower seeds and finished it off by filling the basket with Spanish moss.

  1. Shar, this is absolutely adorable! What a sweet gift!

  2. This is a great "little" gift! I love the way you re-purposed the packaging. I'm always looking for things to up-cycle.

  3. Hi Shar!

    This is such a cute little gift!
