Ice-Cream Sundae Gift Basket

I've got to the point whereby i hate buying presents for people unless it has a purpose. I've also sort of set myself a little challenge to send friends something a little bit different ... something that no-one else is liable to send them. Plus the fact what do you get someone who has most things?!
Off i went on a mission to find something that was going to be easy to put together and would suit my budget ... and thats something i find a gift basket does ... i can spend as little or as much as i can afford and no matter what, it still looks impressive!All wrapped in cellophane ready to go!
Without the cellophane for a better look ....
The box i used was the bottom of a shoe box from a gorgeous pair of those shoe/boots that i brought last week from a shoe party for £5! .... gone off on a bit of a tangent there lol!
CS ~ Stash.
DP's ~ Pink Petticoat.
Tissue Paper ~ Stash ... put through the paper shredder.
Tools ~ Dovecraft (i think) heart border punch.
Contents of box ~ 2 Sundae Glasses (£1.95 Morrisons), 2 Sundae Spoons (49p for 6 Instore), Askeys Continental Cones (99p Morrisons), Choc Wafers (65p Morrisons), Askeys Crackin' Ice-Cream Topping (93p BOGOF Morrisons), Hundreds & Thousands (85p Morrisons), Sugar Strands (Free from kitchen cupboard), Ice-Cream Scoop (£1.00 hardware shop), Strawberry's (45p Reduced Section Morrisons), Banana's (part of a huge bag 55p Reduced Section Morrisons), which makes a grand total of £7.86, but bear in mind i have 4 more spoons and strawberries and banana's to devour!

My friend Kim was absolutely thrilled when i gave this to her Tuesday night ... she even took it into work with her Wednesday so that she could show the girls there ... bless her! I most definately have a couple of people in mind for one of these, but i wont be saying who cos i know they have a nosey on her periodically!
