A Tisket, A Tasket, A Pretty Little Basket

I am so proud of myself for this one, I cannot believe, I haven't shared it yet with you!

I designed this myself--it's all me! How cool is that? Inside are two nuggets. I had to glue dot them in to keep them in place, but you can pry them out!

Stamps: Simply Said
Paper: Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Petal Card Punch, Brads, 5/8 inch Satin Daffodil Delight Ribbon

How'd I do that? Well, if you came to my February Workshops, you'd know, but since many of you werent' there, I'll show some tips. First of all, you need 4 petal card punches. Fold along two score lines. Adhere together to make a heart shaped little box. Then, glue two together, down the middle. Place a brad through the middle to hold your ribbon, and you are done. Sounds easy, but it's trickier visually.

From this view you can see how I adhered two bottoms together.















From this view you can see how the middle of the basket has a wall--this provides stability and lets you add a nugget on each side.

My mom even made some of these for our Easter table after I showed her how when we made Ronald McDonald House treats in February, or March, or whenever that was!


Happy Stamping!
