I needed two small gift baskets for two of my favorite people and I happened to spy two take-out containers that I purchased at Ben Franklin Crafts just because they were so pretty. By folding the flaps inward, the baskets were formed and would hold more treats than the take-out box folded in the normal way. To add more flair I wound pipe cleaners around the handles and tied on a matching ribbon. (My husband preferred the handles unadorned so that might be something to remember if the gift is for a man.) Voila! I had instant gift baskets which can be made suitable for many occasions. I think perhaps if you filled a ziploc bag with gel crystals (available at BFC) the basket take-out container would be a quickie bouquet vase for the hostess or hospital patient. Isn't it fun to think outside the take-out box?
