Here is another Easter basket for you to try. Two more Fridays before Easter, so you still have time to create this cutie or check back on the 26th and April 2nd for more ideas.
Both of these baskets were created using this pattern, View this photo,
that our friend and fellow demonstrator, Mary, provided. Mary created the pink and chocolate bunny basket using Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip card stock and Pretty in Pink DSP. She used punches to create the bunny face, added googlie eyes and the whiskers are created from unraveling our grosgrain ribbon.
The basket we created was made using Pumpkin Pie card stock and Sweet Pea DSP that can be found on page 33 of the Occasions Mini catalog. The handle is a 1" wide piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock with a 1/2" piece of DSP down the center. It is attached using two of the flower brads from the Designer Brads, Flower Assortment. We've added Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon, Linen Thread and a Pumpkin Pie button, from the Sherbet collection, to the top of the handle. The flowers are punched from the XL Fancy Flower punch.
This last image illustrates how you can alter the pattern to your specifications. Ours was done exactly like the attached pattern. However, Mary increased the sides of the box to make hers a little wider.
