Pink Easter Basket



This is the Easter basket that I made for my MIL & for the Charmed Cards members challenge. I made the basket using 12x12 double sided paper & then used my Martha Stewart doiley punch to make the edging. I added blooms & pearl brads & ribbon on the handle. The round tag was stamped & cut out using a punch & the edge inked & mounted on another circle scalloped punch & a button in the centre. The other tag was hand cut & stamped with the Happy Easter sentiment & again inked round the edge.



The chocolate bunny is looking after the eggs in the basket! :-) which are on a bed of shredded kitchen roll (we are away in the Yorkshire Dales & I only have a few crafty bits with me to play with)

Wow Rach that's really pretty, i bet your MIL loved it.

Loved the shredded kitchen roll idea, a crafter needs to use whatever they can get there hands on when needs must! :)

Thanks Calv.

The kitchen roll shredded worked really well & it was a case of needs must! :-) & I was putting food on top so it seemed appropriate :-)
