A tisket a tasket -- yes, an Easter Basket!

Any last minute stampers needing to make something to hold Easter treats? What about a cute little basket using Stampin' Up! ovals framelits?

Inspiration came from Emma on Splitcoaststampers. HERE is a picture of her version on her blog. Emma says to use the second to largest oval die to cut the eggs. The handle is 11"x1". There is an inside frame to hold the goodies. Mine is a piece of cardstock measuring 6"x 2" long. The short edge is scored @ 1/2" and 1-1/2". The long edge is scored @ 2" and 4". Then you snip along a couple score lines on each side to fold it up and glue it to the ovals which need to be sliced a bit to make a flat bottom edge.

You can't see it in my picture but I punched out two smaller eggs with the same designer paper as the big eggs using the extra-large oval punch. I also cut a strip from the blushing bride glimmer paper measuring 12"x 3/4".  Using a tiny flower punch, I punched a few flowers along the strip then adhered the strip to the handle.

Found some Easter stickers of chicks and bunnies at the craft store to finish the front and back of the basket. I made some chocolate chip cookies and wrapped them up inside. MMMM ... they are really good too!

I used some old designer series paper -- gotta use that stuff up! Besides your own designer series paper, here is a list of some items you need to make this basket:

Happy Easter to one and all!

That's all folks!

And ... may you ...
