Project: Easter Basket Tutorial

If you liked the easter basket, here's how you can make one too!

1) I cut 3 strips of paper, the outside decorative strip I cut with the Martha Stewart Flower Bed deep edge punch is an inch and a half wide, the green one is 2 and a half and the pink one is 3 inches. Then I placed one strip on the other and decided that I didn't like the sizes so I narrowed a bit the green strip. I scored on the last two measuring about half an inch from the straight end and then made little fringes with the scissors. The fringes will be glued on the round piece. In order to cut the round piece I used the largest nestabillitie from the large set. I also used distress inks.
2) I adhered the srip on the circle
3) Then I adhered the inside strip
4) Then I adhered the decorative strip and cut the fringes on the pink paper
5) Then I didn't like the inside of the basket, it seemed too plain to me, so I cut two circles, the green one the same size with the base circle and then trimmed it with the scissors so as to make it fit inside after adhering on top the patterned one. Then I cut anothed strip using the border punch, accented the edges with green distress inks and put it in place. I also used the bone folder to bend the pink strips and added some pink distress ink on top.
6) Then I used the Fiskars Threading Water border punch on a 12 inches long strip, I punched the one side from one end to the other, then cut it at one inch width and punched the other side too. I also cut 2 very narrow strips from the pp, one for underneath the green one and the other to be placed on top the green one.
Then I added the handle on the basket.
7) I used this cute little stamp and then I adhered it with foam pads on a larger round piece of paper. Then I made the "happy easter" strip using white paper and distress inks. I adhered it on the basket with foam pads, on the exact spot where the edges of the decorative strips meet, so the "seam" is not visible.
8) And here's the final result:
Ok, I think I overdid it a bit, but still, isn't it cute?
