Mother’s Day Beach Gift Basket and Tags with Petaloo and Authentique
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Merry Month of May! In a few short days it will be Mother’s Day. Do you have your cards and gifts all made? If not, I’m here to help with a super fun Mother’s Day Beach Gift Basket and Tags.
I found this pasteboard berry basket when I was packing up the studio to move, and when I received the bright, tropical Authentique Utopia collection in my Petaloo Design Team package, I knew they were a match, so I went to work on this Mother’s Day Beach Basket and Tags goodie pack.
I started out painting my berry basket inside and out with a coat of Studio Matte Multi Medium. This served to strengthen the basket and made it a little more waterproof as well. Next, I applied Matte Medium to my Petaloo Burlap trim and glued it all the way around the basket like a belly band. I added a row of Pink Burlap trim around the lip of the basket. Layering on pretty flowers, a seashell charm, fibers and memo pin title make it feel fun and festive.
Then I went to work creating a series of tags to tuck inside the basket. I found that Ranger Manila Tags worked great when I trimmed about 1/5″ off the bottom edge. After inking all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, I layered on fun papers and images from the Authentique Utopia collection. Tucking in Petaloo flowers and little beach goodies I found in my stash made each tag into a mini gift all its own.
How fun would it be to make Mom a tropical breakfast with a Pina Colada and some fresh pineapple and then tuck this darling Mother’s Day Beach Gift Basket onto the tray? You could hide a gift card, Spa Getaway or other small gift into the basket, too.
I hope you found some fun ideas here. I know this Mom loves the beach…and chocolate, and cute tags and pretty flowers…so I’m pretty sure your Mom would be thrilled with a Mother’s Day Beach Gift Basket, too!
Thanks for stopping by!
