I have spent the past 3 days with some kind of electronic device in hand, on Pinterest looking for the best way to create a scratch ticket bouquet for a fundraiser this Saturday night.
I have $100.00 to spend and I want to make it look fabulous.
I found all kinds of cool pictures, but when I click on the link to learn how to create it, there is either a dead link or a website that has nothing to do with the original picture.
I decided to figure it out on my own and create a “how to” post so that others can read a real post about the real pictures :-).
I purchased a cute container with a really sweet flower on the front- no need for me to decorate! I took it to the floral department and put a gazillion of those floral foam balls inside to see which fit the tightest. I found one that wasn’t perfect but would work. I had the rest of the supplies at home already so I only spent about $10.00 at the craft store.
Lollipop sticks or skewer sticks
Container of choice
Crinkle cut basket filler
Ribbon to tie a bow
Tape the lollipop sticks to the back of the scratch tickets. Be sure to not tape the bar code on the back. You want to make sure the person who wins can redeem the ticket and they won’t be able to without the bar code. The heights can vary.
Stick the sticks in the floral foam
I had to secure the ball in place with a little tissue paper. You don’t want the tickets moving from side to side.
Cover the foam with something that looks nice. I used a little crinkle cut basket filler.
Wrap with cellophane, tie a bow and you are finished!
These baskets are usually great sellers at fundraiser/auctions.
We’d love to see how yours come out! Share pics in the comments!
