Default Bow basket ideas?

I'm looking for some cute ideas for some bow/clip baskets. I want to make a few for a donation for a silent auction at a benefit. A little girl from my daughter's babygarten group was recently diagnosed with cancer and her benefit is coming up in August. I think I might make a flower pot one and maybe the gift basket that's on HG. I would still like some other ideas though. I want to do something for the little girl also. Any ideas will be a big help. Thanks. Here's her story, http://www.newrichmond-news.com/event/article/id/29520/

Hello!
I recently did a basket for a silent auction a few weeks ago. I did a cinderella/princess theme. I added cinderella bubble bath princess rings etc. With my bows, I made a cinderella clippie and mixed up the rest. I wrapped dowel rods with floral tape and used the small clear rubber bands to attach the bows. I wrapped three rubber bands on a dowel and spaced them a few inches apart.My bows clipped nicely on the bands. I used a pink basket ($1 at dollar store) placed styrofoam down and covered with colored paper grass.Then poked my dowels in throughout. I finished with a clear cello bag over top and tied with ribbon a small sheet with the value and contents on it. I hope this makes sense. I did see a cute one on here awhile back some one made it was adorable. I will tryi to find it for you. I also thought about using a kids sand bucket for my base and filling with summer/beach bows.

I had a student this school year with a brain injury due to an ATV accident. I made a basket with a bow for every month plus a birthday bow with beanies and headbands to match.

I made a few small ones for my Daughter's school fun fair fundraiser...

I made smaller ones as they wanted something the kids could bid on...I was stuck on how to display....
I ended up using a plastic lime green plate laid items on it and then wrapped it in salafan and tied with ribbons

I made this one for the Breastfeeding Coalition auction in May: http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/hairb...t-bowquet.html. It was a lot of fun to make.

Wow! All of the baskets look so awesome. I made one so far. Just a simple flower pot one and I found a basket to make another once I get some more clips. That is if Sally's ever get them in again.

I made recently for the school auction...it went for over $100. I tried to stay within the theme of flowers or flowery ribbons. I also added bugs and of course my john deere tractor bow
