Card Creations and More #8 A cute Basket

This week  at Card Creations and More, we were to make any thing, but not a card or a layout. So immediately I thought of two things. Carrots that I made last year from and some type of basket. I searched for options online and found this one made by Denise Hill on her blog. She has the SVG file to use.  Hers has a handle I chose not to use.

The bottom one was my first try. I thought it would be cute to add ribbon, but it was too thick and did not look right. The second try, I decided to fancy it up a bit by adding a punched border and this time a  thinner ribbon and of course cute paper flowers. I thought of making 3-D flowers but went with the flat version for convience and time. Either way I am glad to have made these. Now just 44 more. I am making these baskets for Teacher Appreciations week and our theme is, " Our teacher and staff are our stars." Each will get a VIP basket of cute things on one of the days that week. In order to keep cost down.  Paper is the lest expense way to go, unless I can find some after Easter clearance baskets that don't look too Eastery.
