they look brilliant!

how much did you have to pay for the celaphane? also are baskets quite easy to find? im thinking of doing one for my sister in law for her birthday as she's quite hard to buy for and she always gives a flipping list with what she wants and its always expensive stuff, so this year she's getting what she's given like it or lump it lol (or is that harsh?)
It only seems kinky the first time..

I would say finding bargain baskets are not that easy to find so when I see one I always buy them.

The celephane cost either 25p or 50p a metre - It was was really cheap. Just bought it from a local florist.

Glad you liked them everyone x I am very chuffed with them.

celophane was £7 for the full roll from florist suppliers last time i bought it which was 2yr ago but cant see it going up too mush in price.
far cheaper to buy it that way. pound shops sell various baskets at various times so just keep popping in.
