  1. Turn basket right side up, and gather ribbon ends together so they lay flat against each other at the top of a triangle. Cut off any excess, and then dab fabric glue along top of cut ends to secure; hold until it sets. Glue the inner side of each end of the hanging-ribbon strip to one flat side of the gathered cut ends, making a loop. Glue tuxedo bow to each side to conceal ribbon ends. Fill basket with candy.
