With two pretty fabrics and some fabric stiffener, you can mold cute favor baskets with ease.
You can even turn your party favors into place cards by adding these cute picks.
Depending on the fabrics you choose and the size and shape of your basket, you can make these to match all kinds of celebrations.

Next, place the cardboard circle in the center of the fabric. The cardboard should be dry-especially the surface that will come in contact with the votive holder. (The purpose of this cardboard is to keep the bottom of the votive holder dry-this makes it much easier to separate it from the finished basket later.)

Place the votive holder on top of the cardboard.


Pull the four points of the fabric up to the sides of the votive holder.


Carefully pick the edges of the fabric at four points of the circle, and bring them against the walls of the votive holder, as shown. The fabric will stick lightly to the glass, but you'll likely need your hands to hold it in place at this stage.


Press the fabric between each of those four points to the glass.


This leaves four spaces where the fabric is not touching the glass. Here's what you'll do at each of those spaces:

First, bring the fabric up to meet the wall of the votive holder, as shown.


Smooth the two resulting folds in the same direction.


This creates two small folds of fabric. Smooth these folds gently down so they're facing the same direction. The fabric will stick to itself nicely at this point, so these flaps should lie flat without you needing to hold them.

Repeat this process at the other three points.


Here's how the fabric should lie at the end of the process.


When you're done, you'll have a series of small flaps around the edge of the basket, all folded in the same direction.
