These are great last minute containers for a party or get-together. They are inspired by a Martha Stewart project. Martha uses colored rubberbands to wrap around and secure the paper plates. At Sarah Hearts she makes an even cuter version using Washi tape in place of the rubberbands. Make sure to check out her photo and video tutorial!
These would be perfect for any holiday, birthday party, or just friends coming over to visit. To give these baskets a little more pop, try using tissue paper. Simply line the basket with a color that matches the tape. You want the paper to be long enough so that it reaches the edges of the top of the basket. Then, add your goodies and you are set!
*If you do use tissue paper, make sure the food is dry like cookies, chips, candy, etc.
