I'm officially obsessed with the Sweet Sentiments paper I won in Graphic 45's Twitter contest. It it so pretty and spring-y - perfect for Easter projects. I thought I would use it, along with the largest of Eileen's block dies, to make a sweet Easter basket. Below is a quick look at how it came together:
To create a handle for the basket, adhere a length of rosette trim to a white pipe cleaner. Punch two holes in the box, thread the ends of the pipe cleaner through, and twist to secure.
For the ruffle trim, cut a length of crepe paper about two feet long. Stitch a third of the way down using a running stitch. Pull the threads to gather into a ruffle. Using a strong double-sided tape, adhere to edge of box.
I am totally thrilled with how this turned out. It uses so many of my favorite things - from the paper, to the dies, to the pretty feminine colors. Speaking of favorite things, that just happens to be the theme over at the Inspiration Emporium blog this month. Make sure you check out THIS post to get all the details. I'm so excited to see what you all come up with!
