Project: Mother's Day Basket

Today is a day of celebration for the moms all around the world, but here in Greece today was a day tinted with rage and grief due to the recent events in downtown Athens. We all realize that, alas, human life worths nothing these days, more so when it happens so close to you and under such circumstances, and after the spectrum of emotions that you go through, the residue is fear, fear for the next day and the next and the next, fear for ourselves, for our loved ones, fear for the human race all around the world.
That being said, I return to my little "safe" world, where I made a basket with flowers for my dear mom.
 This is a basket that I've seen many times in various blogs and YouTube videos, so I decided to give it a try:
I started with a 8x8 paper (from the DCWAW Garden Party paper pack) and scored every side at 2 and a half inches. Then I cut four squares at 2 inches and a quarter and adhered them on the four square pieces. I only made four cuts on the whole thing, I added some red lines in the photo so as to give you an idea.
I also covered the lot with Ranger's Crackle Accents.
 Then I added the strip of paper for the handle and secured the sides together with a brad, I also added on each side a flower and some green swirls I made.
Then I put inside it many layers of white thin paper that I had already stamped with the Hero Arts's "Old Letter" stamp and red distress ink and then positioned in the center a small plastic pot and...ready!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there, hope the children of the world will always be safe and happy.
