Burger Baskets...

 ...cheese please...hold the mayo!

Totally confused?   Don't be...this idea has been rambling around in my head for about 2 years! 

When Melissa told me they were going to a multi-family bar-b-que at her friend Jody's, I knew I finally had my reason to make my idea come to life!

All I needed to know was how many kids there would be.  That number was 10...no problem!  This is what I came up:


How fun, right?!  When I said I had been thinking about these for 2 years, I wasn't kidding!  That is about when I picked the baskets up at Joanns on clearance for 90% off.  They have been patiently waiting in the closet waiting for their day to shine!  I made the french fry holders with my Silhouette.  Of course, no fry would be complete without something to dip it in...so I made little "ketchup" cups!



Whatcha' think?  Kinda cute huh?!  I was told they were quite a hit!

While I have you here, I will share my latest Goodwill find.  To say it needs some TLC, is putting it mildly...but for only $6, I know that Kelli can always use extra storage in her master bathroom.


It doesn't look TOO bad from that picture.  Now for it's "issues":



Yep, it's a hot mess for sure.  Of course it is not even close to being real wood and the lovely pressboard is going to be a challenge, but I love a good challenge!  BTW, wasn't it nice of them to throw in the pieces that were once part of the back of this thing?!  Yeah, like I am going to just glue those pieces back together...sheesh!

Stay tuned for it's makeover...

Do tell, how did you cut the crinkle-cut fries? I also want to know what the "ketchup" is. Very cute!

the burgers look delicious! :)

how weird that someone donated that, and they priced it at $6. It does have some issues for sure!
good luck, but I'm sure you will rock it out!

The ketchup is just red icing.
