Heartland Paper is impressing me MORE & MORE!! I am LOVING these Gift Baskets they put together…and I think every one of them is wonderful! I can’t wait to create one of these for an upcoming birthday! So fun, useful (expecially the chocolate one, huh…), and EXTREMELY pleasing to the eye! Here are the images and details of the gift ideas shown on the show “Studio 5” this week. Each basket has a tag with instructions so you can have fun making these at home.
