Dotty Breakfast Set

With Mother's Day fast approaching, you just have to go all out and do something special.

To make this set I first purchased a one person teapot with cup base, as this would dictate what colour scheme I would be using. I found this gorgeous red and white dotty one in my local supermarket.

I then purchased food items to go in the basket (i.e. marmalade, teabags etc). I stamped some red paper stock with a cup design in white stayzon and wrapped the items up. I used the PC to typeset the names of the items into circles, in red on white paper, for use on the medallions. Using my cuttlebug and nestabilities scallop circle dies, I diecut using a small circle around the printed circles and with a silicone sheet embossed it too. I then cut a larger scallop circle in black and glued the white circle on to the black one, to form medallions, with a flower in the centre to finish. I did this for all the items.I purchased a basket gift wrapping set from my local supermarket. With white stayzon, I stamped the same cup design all over the wrapping (which seemed to take forever, as it was rather a large sheet). After arranging the items in the basket, I made sure it was centred on the gift wrap, gathered up the top and tied it with paper ribbon in red. Rolled the sides and stapled them together (I didnt want to use sellotape, as I think it can look untidy).

Now I've just got to hope she likes it!
