Thanks everyone for the ideas! As this will be an ongoing "inventory", I'll definitely send most to my niece's school. Maybe they can plant things in them. I do like the match game idea and will play around with that  Smiley

I've made this pattern several times as gifts for friends. How fun that you made it into a blanket! It would not have occurred to me to go there. Good job!

Insanely Gorgeous! I am jealous of the couple that received it (I'm sure they were THRILLED!) I'm definitely going to give this a go using your notes.

With The Hobbit movie releasing this December, are you going to try your hand at making another one?! (hint, hint)

I have a zillion of these things and have searched for ideas - beyond using them for storage, I found nothing. Any ideas on a fun craft-related use for these? The labels come right off leaving a semi-transparent white/clear container. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

LOL - showing my age here. I thought ATC was All Terrain Vehicle  Tongue

Here are a few random thoughts...

  • Imaginary creatures
  • Something that reminds you of summer
  • Voodoo dolls for the workplace
  • Favorite cut of meat
  • Facial expressions (could include body language)
  • Diorama (e.g., tacky landscaping, nosy neighbors, favorite TV show, scene from a movie, scenery of some sort)
  • Your interpretation of a wireless network
  • Fish on a stick
  • What your parents wanted you to be when you grew up
  • Diorama of what the workplace would look like without you

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Brisingr Gift Basket on: December 19, 2008 12:47:39 PM
I have a friend that is very much into the Inheritance Series of books (e.g., Eragon) and I decided to pick up the latest book for her for Christmas. At the book store, they were also selling Beanie Baby dragons in gold as a promotion. From that, I got the idea to make a gift basket.

Most of the items in the basket were bought at a sale or discounted price Smiley
  • The 'basket' was a pretty wooden lidded box with roses painted on it that I picked up at Marshalls = $5
  • I had purchased 2 copies of the book when it went on sale. In addition to the sale price, I had a coupon for 40% off so in the end, the 2nd copy of the book cost about $5
  • My friend is also an avid crocheter and I thought it would be cool to find some gold yarn that the dragon could 'nest' on. At Big Lots, I found Moonlit Mohair for $1.50 per ball (normally about $4 per ball I think.) I bought all they had which came to 9 balls = $13.50
  • Unfortunately, I did not pick up the dragon the day I bought the books. But I found a brand new one on eBay! = $10
  • Gold bead Christmas Tree garland (dragon treasure) = $1
  • Gold Coin Chocolates (more dragon treasure) = $6
  • Bag of Lindt truffles to complete the basket = $2.50
  • Shrink wrap, ribbon, ornaments = $4.50

and voila!

The whole basket cost about $47 to make. Considering the book at full price is $27.50, and the yarn would have cost $36 if purchased in a craft or yarn shop, I think I did pretty good Wink Thanks for looking!
