  • Take your basket and fill with shredded newspaper or tissue paper. Add colored crinkle shred on top. 
  • Take your tall item and tie it to the handle. Wine, sparkling cider, box of candy, etc. 
  • Tape the other themed items next to it, but make sure you can see any pretty labels or items. 
  • Add assorted candies to the items in front. 
  • Take your cellophane and wrap it up on the front and back of the basket and tie it just above the handle. Take the sides and carefully tape so it is closed. If using shrink wrap, place the basket inside the bag and hold the top of it above the handle. Use the heat gun to remove all extra air and get a smooth finish. 
  • Make a bow out of wired ribbon and tie at the base of the handle. Drape the ends and glue to sides of basket.
