It's been a busy week so far and its only Wednesday! Two of my kids have been sick since the weekend and are now finally starting to feel better, I've been prepping for my Stamp Camp which is tonight and in between still trying to work on swaps and projects for the March 27 Michigan Mingle.
Anyhoo the basket up top was created using two panels from the SU Basket & Blooms Sizzix die except instead of creating a round basket like the basket normally would be, I followed the directions from a SCS thread (thanks to my sister-in-law Jen for finding the directions) and created what you see. What you do is cut the front and back panels from the die then cut one 8 1/2"x 2 3/4" strip, score 1/4" on both long sides and 2 3/4" on each end of the short sides. I would recommend using Tacky Tape to put this together and start with taping the sides first.
The picture to the left is the back side of the basket, its difficult to see from the picture but the Barley Banana card stock was stamped with the Stitched Back ground stamp using So Saffron ink so the texture of the stamp would show up more. The center label on the front and back of the basket is from the new Matchbox die and was pop dotted after applying the butterfly and Easter Wishes.
