Eataly Gift Basket – If you are giving a gift basket to a loved one for a special occasion, you will want to make sure that the “package” looks better. The addition of ribbon accents on the basket will add both color and texture to the donation. And will make the decorative container as elegant or playful as the recipient. Some art supplies can also help improve the appearance of the ribbon to make the basket one-of-a-kind.
Buy tapes in a color that matches the contents of the basket. For example, a fall or a Thanksgiving gift basket with themes is beautifully accented with burgundy or burnt orange ribbon. Wrap the ribbon around the handle or directly under the edge of the basket to determine the amount you need. Cut the tape to the right size.
Decorate the ribbon strip with the puff pastry paint. For example, add small details in the painting all around the ribbon for a polka dot design, or draw hearts, stars or the initials of the recipient to further customize the basket. Let the paint dry. Apply hot glue to the unpainted side of the tape and wrap the tape around the handle of the basket or just below the edge of the basket. Allow time for the glue to dry before presenting the basket.
