What to put in a Gift Basket
In general, I am a unique person! If you have seen my website I try to come up with the outside of the box type of gifts, games, and fun! With that, I love gifting gifts to people. Especially when I know someone’s type of personality or things that they are in to. That, of course, helps a lot! The best part about how to create a money gift basket is that you don’t need to know their personality!
Even Aunt Elda would love this gift basket! It’s all about the money! Name me one person that doesn’t love receiving money! Ohh la la! LOL

- Tea or Hot Chocolate
- Body Lotion
- Beer (Over 21)
- Baked Goods
- Stuffed Animal
- Easter Eggs

How To Create a Money Gift Basket for All Occasions
In this tutorial, the first thing you will use is this removable putty. First, you will need to add a small amount (as pictured below) to the back of the dollar bills. Next, apply pressure and stick it to the basket. Apply one dollar bill after another to take up space it would need to cover the basket. Twenty $1 dollar bills will fill (this type) of a basket.
Tip: Using the removable putty verses tape helps for the dollar bills not to rip when taking them off the basket.
Lastly, when it comes to the basket handle. Do the same thing apply the putty on the back of the dollar bill and wrap it around the handle. This part you will probably need a little more putty just to tuck in the dollar bills nicely. Don’t be discouraged this gift basket is really easy to create!
