Frugal Gift Basket

My craft tip is to stock up on any seasonal items that look versatile especially if it's 90% off or more. A little modpodge and floral paper flower accents changes the feel of the basket into spring/summer.

Easter basket - .39 cents, originally $3.99
Transparent giftwrap - .19 cents, originally $1.99

All the items inside the basket are items that I coupon. Estimate, I spent no more than $20 for everything when all the items inside would normally retail $85+.



  1. I used Martha Stewart floral crafts stamp and punch set. I punched 12" inch strips.
  2. Apply thin layer of modpodge and the floral strip. Allow to dry and add another layer of modpodge.
  3. As basket filler - I used newspaper inserts. Accordion fold then cut to your desire size.
  4. Fill gift basket with the newspaper filling.
  5. Ready to add all your gifts in the basket and use transparent gift wrap then secure with a bow.
