This is the picnic basket and card set in the pink. I did each of the 5 sets in different colours, all using the same patterned paper sets from Papermania (I actually didn't realise I owned 5 of the packs until I started sorting out what papers to use).
These are all 5 picnic baskets. I added some tissue paper in matching colours inside too. I filled them with some smellies from The Sanctuary Spa and 3 mini bottles fitted in perfectly. Each basket took about 30 minutes to make as I don't print onto cardstock because my printer is knackered and splodges ink everywhere so I printed one template at work and use it to draw round on the cardstock I want.
And these are the card sets all together. I extended Lauren's templates so that our envelopes would fit and the cover measures 7 x 11. The inside envelopes measure 6 1/2" across.
This is the inside. Each set had 5 cards, 5 envelopes and a pen to which I added a piece of patterned paper on the inside barrel.
These were the cards - very simple sketches as I was making so many of them. All of them loved the presents and I have to say so did I.
