Was hoping to get some discussion going on how you clever ladies make things look like a million bucks - without spending it! :smilegifts: For example, if I do a gift basket I am using: - A basket purchased for $0.25 or $0.50 at a garage sale - The filler is Easter “grass” purchased right after Easter for as little as $0.25 a bag (Note: Look for the paper crinkles in green, they look less "Eastery". Blue crinkles would work great for a winter/snowflake/Frozen theme gift basket. For that matter, a Frozen theme gift basket for a girl would look great with PINK crinkle paper filler! - Cellophane purchased for at least 50% off at day after Christmas sales - Wired Ribbon purchased the same way TIP: When you buy new Christmas light sets, save the extra long twist ties they package them with. These work GREAT for twisting around the "neck" of the gathered up cellophane of your basket. Once secure, you can then easily take your time tying on the ribbon and making your bow! What are some other ideas for making things POP for pennies???
