This is one very good idea/suggestion for those who are looking for a low cost party souvenir. For illustration purposes I created a sample using scraps, including in the making of the flowers.

Supplies:

  • 1 plastic bottle cap
  • a bouquet of mini flowers
  • ribbons of different colors and sizes
  • specially designed scented paper
  • glue (white glue/hot glue)
  • scissors
  • double sided tape
  • other accessories of your choice

Steps:

  1. Cover the bottle cap very neatly with a special scented paper. Or you can also use fabric to cover it.

  3. Pour some white or hot glue inside the basket and fill with green paper trimmings. See photo.
  4. Cut a small strip out of the scented paper. Fold it thinly.
  5. Bend the strip to form the handle. Glue into place and wrap with a ribbon.
  6. The cap now looks exactly like a basket. Wrap its body with another ribbon.

  8. Pour hot glue over paper trimmings then put the flowers inside and fix them in your desired arrangement. The flowers I used in this project are all handmade by me due to lack of materials. I created them out of colored paper clippings.
  9. Add some more details and beautify as much as you want.
  10. You now have a pretty tiny basket of flowers.
