Movie Ticket Gift Baskets

My mother made these last fall for Christmas presents and I think they are cute! She filled the basket with boxed candy, microwave popcorn, and Blockbuster gift cards. I think this would make a great gift for the hard to buy for teenager for any occasion.

You'll need:

1 roll of tickets (Walmart or Oriental Trading)
Mod Podge
plastic floral picks (kind that look like pitchforks)
goodies to fill the bowl
optional: small piece of cardboard to plug bottom hole

1. Using your hands, push tickets outward from the center to form bowl.
2. Coat inside and outside with a few layers of Mod Podge.
3. If you want this to be a popcorn bowl, glue a small circle of cardboard to the underside of bowl to plug the hole.
4. Place candy and popcorn into bowl.
5. Cut down floral pick to desired size. Using tape, secure the floral pick to the popcorn wrapper.
6. Place gift cards into floral picks.
7. Wrap with a plastic bag and a pretty bow.

Bowl can be wiped clean, but cannot be washed with water.
