I had purchased the Baskets & Bloom die a few months ago for a downline meeting, but then didn’t use it. I like the little cup shape, but the bottom can be a little fussy to put together and it doesn’t hold as much as I was hoping. So, when I saw a picture of a container made with the sides of the basket and an extra piece of cardstock, I was so excited! I could make the basket any size I wanted…to hold cards, or in this case some chocolate DOVE Easter eggs! Yummy! I made these for the participants of my Stamp Camp last weekend.
I used the two ends of the basket diecuts and the Delicate Dots designer paper…trimmed off the tab, and then scored 1/4 inch from each side to adhere to the 3 1/2 x 8 cardstock center (score the 8" side at 2 3/4 in from each side). Then I decorated the Certainly Celery sides with a Eyelet Border punch trim of Delicate Dots DSP and added the 5 petal flower from Polka Dot Punches in Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery for the leaves. I added a 1/2 circle punch with the same stamp in the center. Each of the baskets were filled with Easter grass and some Dove chocolates! They looked cute sitting on the tables, but I forgot to get a picture of the entire group of them! Oh well…
