Brandy's DIY Version of Caroline's Travel Basket

Caroline's Travel Basket shown above is the one Brandy has created, here is how she did it!

-The basket was purchased at Hobby Lobby for $2.00.
-I hemmed a small piece of scrap fabric to make a cloth napkin.
-The apples were recycled from an old decorative front door wreath.
-The gingerbread cakes were made from 1 inch wood round head plugs.  I found
these at my local Michael's craft store.  Each was painted a warm brown.
Once dry, I used tacky glue to add white opaque glitter to resemble powdered
-The map was the American Girl map printed out on card-stock paper.
 Now that is really cool! Thank you Brandy for sharing this fun, easy and inexpensive DIY Travel Basket!
