This week friends and family will gather in back yards all across the country to eat food, play games, and enjoy each others' company.  If you're looking for a fun way to add a little handmade flare to the festivities, or to any picnic or barbecue, try making pretty paper food baskets for serving your guests!  Jessica from Zakka Life has provided a free printable template for making them; all you have to do is cut and glue!  I love the carnival-like feel they have, and by using different papers, you can customize them to go with any occasion!  [how to make paper food baskets]

  • Printable template, free
