Christmas Hamper

When I came back from my UK trip and back to work immediately on the 29 Nov, I was welcomed with some news. It was considered a bad news according to one of my staff.

I had to complete a mission right after I stepped into the shop. I had to wrap some hampers which I felt it's solely my responsibility. So I kept on hold the supposedly bad news. 

Later when I was a bit relaxed, I welcomed the bad news. The boss had ordered some stuff for me which I have to utilise for making the basket hampers.

I felt it was alright but I had no idea how to do it. Never mind, I patiently waited for the materials to arrive.

Finally it arrived last Friday. I was curious and started to play with it.

My first basket hamper was a tragedy. It didn't turn out well. I continued with the next one and kept on doing till yesterday. Few days ago, I got some information from you-tube. I roughly got a better idea.

Hamper number 9: my last but not least masterpiece as at yesterday.
More to come!

Honestly, I was satisfied as finally I got it right..even the boss said that this basket was the best!

Something to celebrate: I took my boy and girl for a treat at Sushi King!

Ok, guessing game again.
How much is this hamper?

    1. yes, making the basket hamper with the cellophane wrap is rather tricky. The top part is easy to wrap but not the sides. Finally I knew how to do it perfectly well. I'm only satisfied when it's done correctly.

  2. Good morning Wenn,

    So what is the bad news? Having to wrap hampers using baskets with handles?

    My guess is RM298 for this hamper.

    Good move to watch youtube to find out more ways to make hampers using baskets and then practice makes perfect. Well deserved celebration at Sushi King!

    1. Previously, I had mastered the older kind of hamper wrapping. But this basket wrapping is rather tedious initially.

  11. I'm late here I will be guessing it about RM68?

  12. RM68 is fairly reasonable eh with the basket. At least they charged RM100-RM150 for those with basket one.

    1. I'm a first timer so should charge a little reasonable..

  13. Can see from here, sparkling juice, cadbury chocolates, waffers and etc...plus the basket I would charge it a lil bit higher, maybe about RM88. This is due to your material you use for the hampers - good quality of paper bows you've got there....

    1. I will definitely charge higher when I hv excelled in my wrapping.
