A tisket, a tasket...

A pretty yellow basket! We made this fun little favor at a recent workshop and it was a hit. I was inspired by a similar basket made by fellow demo Rachel Durtschi, which she passed out to everyone in our downline group at the Milwaukee Regional.

I used my Box #2 die to create the box/base of the basket. I simply trimmed off the lid and tabs on the top of the box and assembled it as usual. Next I added the sides - Scallop Circles with the bottom trimmed off. To make the handles, I used my Large Oval punch. I added a flower from the Pretties Kit and some Sweet Pea felt to fancy it up, along with a bit of Rose Red stitched grosgain ribbon.

Wouldn't this make a fun wedding or baby shower favor? We made this same project at my MOPS meeting last night and several of the ladies planned to give it to their moms on Mother's Day. Something pretty filled with chocolate?! What could be better? ;)

Stamps: Sprinkles
Paper: Barely Banana
Ink: So Saffron
Accessories: Big Shot, Box #2 die, Scallop Circle, Large Oval punch, Pretties Kit, Sweet Pea Felt, Rose Red stitched grosgrain ribbon
