I first saw these lovely baskets on Katina's blog, and Katina in turn has linked to instructions for making these oh-so-easy baskets on Jacqui's blog. I made two this morning. using a pad of WRMK papers I picked up for a bargain in TK Maxx a couple of months ago. As I wanted them to fit the 200g Lindt bunny, I used the whole 12" sheet as the basis for the basket. I cut a couple of different strips from a text paper in the pad to create the handles, which were attached using brads with my Cropodile. Not as fancy as Katina and Jacqui's lovely examples, but I think my DD will like hers and my DS will spend all of three seconds looking at his before grabbing the chocolate and disappearing!
Using the same paper pad, I made this Easter card. The background is white paper coloured with Distress ink. The ribbon came from the yellow ribbon kit I won the other week from The Ribbon Girl , the sentiment is computer generated and the rest of the card is a pretty simple paper piecing job.
