I made up a small basket with 3 different flavours of homemade jam made by myself with some roses to give it some colour. I then wrapped it in some lovely foil paper and wrapped it in cellephane with some curling ribbon a homemade tag and a couple of little balls

This is my friend marys christmas present. I have been very busy making different types of chutneys and jams and wanted to make something personal for my friend so i made up this basket with about 10 jars of preserves, matchmakers, oatcakes, crackers and shortbread.
I also put in 2 long handled spoons to reach the bottom of the jars so that nothing is wasted.
I also made a pair of lovely blue stone ear rings and i made a red beaded bookmark which i wrapped up so she has a couple of more pressies to open on christmas morning.
The basket was a nightmare to wrap i wanted to wrap it in cellophane but i didnt want her to be able to see what was in the basket so i wrapped it in christmas paper first then wrapped it in the cellophane.
I added as couple of bows, gold ribbon which i curled and added a couple of baubles . I then made a couple of homemade labels using my bookatrix board and that as they say it that.
Now i have one for my parents to do and one for another friend.....not looking forward to them as they are longer baskets
Just sitting here trying to wrap pressies and thought i would make a pair of ear rings for my friend mary to pop in her basket of preserves for xmas. I also just finished a bookmark for her too which i will wrap seperately and pop into her basket. I made Mary a basket of all the preserves i have made over the last few months along with some crackers and sweet etc. I will post a pic when i eventually get it wrapped....not going to be easy.
