Peppermint gift basket (for BBTB2)

Our marvelous DT leader Susan has challenged us to make a holiday gift container for our BBTB2 challenge this week.  I don't have many cartridges that make 3D items, but I found this cute little gift basket on the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I decorated it with peppermint cuts from the Simply Charmed cartridge and I've filled it up with real peppermints for a sweet holiday treat!   Can't you imagine leaving this on a co-workers desk for a delicious surprise?  I decided to make the handle from ribbon instead of paper so I could jam lots of peppermints in there.  I also added some stickle to my peppermint, mostly because it's just so darn fun and sparkly!
