Relay for Life Basket

At my day job we are raising money for Relay for Life. One of the things we do is to make baskets that employees can buy $1.00 tickets each for a chance to win the basket. The money that is raised goes to Relay for Life and my company matches that amount, which also goes to Relay for Life. My department choose to make a Stimulus basket. We did  a play on words and named it "Fuel you tummy Fill your tank", I was chosen to make the basket. This is what I came up with.
Planter box and watering can. Inside the planter are flowers made from Stampin' Up! dies and punches. The flower are standing up with the aid of lollipop sticks and pipe cleaners for the leaves are $1.00 bills. Behind each flower are gift cards to grocery stores and gas stations plus a visa gift card. On the outside of the fence are plant seeds for planting a garden or herbs. To cute if I should say so myself!

This is how it looks unwrapped.



The watering can. Check out this sign. I made it with My Digital Studio.
