DIY: Baking Gift Basket

This whole project was based off two wood cooking spoons. I found them on etsy at simplyprettyprints. I knew they would make the perfect gift for my friend/coworker who was getting married. Then I thought - how to gift them? That is when I thought of creating a baking gift basket.I gathered all my supplies and made this quick and simple fun gift.

All the supplies out and ready to go

I played around with how best everything would fit in the basket. I was able to fit everything in the basket except one cake mix. I also added red tissue paper for a little fun.

I used a large red bag to wrap the basket but it was too big so I taped the sides around the basket with clear tape. I then added a fun ribbon and tag I made that matched the spoons.

I punched a hole in tag and just string through the ribbon.
