Tiny Easter Basket

  

Materials needed:

Crumb cake card stock

Trimmer

Scissors

Ribbon

Hard wood stamp set

Soft suede ink pad

Glue dots

Sticky strip

1 3/4″ circle punch

Instructions:

1. Cut crumb cake card stock  4″ x 5 1/2″ and ink up the hard wood stamp with soft suede and stamp the card stock on it. Also cut two strip of crumb cake card stock 1/2″ x 6 3/4″ and ink them up as well with the hard wood stamp.

2. With the large piece cut 4 strip that measure 3/4″ wide. ( I suggest taking each strip and curling it a little with a bone folder  to help the basket go together easier).Then take one of the skinner strip and put sticky strip across it. Then start with each 3/4″ strip and adhere then to that one lining up at the top and all the way to the left. When they are all on, start with the first one and criss cross each end over lining the end up with the top strip. When done you should have about 1/2″ or so left at the end, stick this to the beginning of the strip to form the basket.

3. Now punch two crumb cake circles from the 1 3/4″ circle punch. Adhere one on the inside bottom of the basket and one on the outside bottom of the basket to help it sit flat. Sticky strip the last piece of card stock for the handle and add a ribbon to the front and you are done.

ENJOY!
