“Out of This World” Basket Decorations

If you have a child in school, you can appreciate the amount of work that goes into planning the school carnival.  I usually assist in different ways, one of which is wrapping the classroom silent auction baskets.  Since I LOVE wrapping any gift, this is a fun event for me.  The theme this year at one of my daughters school was

“Just Imagine a Galaxy Far, Far Away”

I had fun using planets to make the baskets festive.  Perfect timing with the new Star Wars movie!


If you saw my blog post on how to create amazing gift baskets, then you know how to assemble the items into the basket.

To create the look that the planets are in the air, I used black & dark blue pipe cleaners and taped them to the back of the planet & star die cuts.  I then tied the bottom of the pipe cleaner onto the basket with curling ribbon.

Creating these gift baskets was an “Out of this world” experience!

Happy creating…

“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
