Unique Baby Shower Gift Basket

Baby Shower Gift Basket - Cotton Bath Towels Become Art

Using one bath towel and one washcloth, this clever series of folds results in an unique baby shower gift basket that can be filled with special baby items, or toiletries.

It is a wonderful way to welcome guests to your home, or as a greeting to wedding party guests in their hotel rooms or a perfect baby shower gift to take to the hospital. Best of all, it is not difficult at all.

Try it yourself:

1. Lay the bath towel out flat, vertically. Fold in half by bringing the lower edge upward to meet the top edge. Press the fold flat with the palm of your hand.

2. Divide the folded towel into roughly thirds, then fold along the crease lines, bringing the top edge down first.

3. Divide the resulting shape into thirds again and fold along the crease lines, pressing the folds firmly with the palm of your hand.

4. Open the top layer on the left-hand side and tuck the right-hand side into it to make a secure loop. Fix the edge in place using a safety pin.

5. Open up the loop, place your hand inside one of the folds in the middle, and push the towel down inside the loop to form a base for the unique baby shower gift basket shape.

6. Roll the corner of the washcloth to the center, then turn the shape over to the other side---this will form the handle. If the washcloth is soft, you might want to line it with a piece of tissue paper to add rigidity.

7. Use safety pins to secure the pointed ends of the handle to the each side of the top of the new baby basket.

8. Fill the unique baby shower gift basket with pretty, color-coordinating toiletries, such as soaps, shampoo and/or conditioner and perhaps an additional washcloth in a contrasting color.

And animals are cute for baby showers as well!

This basket is a great idea, and will work for more than just baby showers... You really have some smart people submiting to your site for the contest. Just a question, I looked all threw your site and never found a section showing who wins the contest or is it still going on?
