Good Morning! I hope that you enjoyed the PALS blog hop yesterday….wowzers, there sure is a lot of fabulous talent and inspiration out there. I will say that seeing everyones post sure did make be feel like Spring IS REALLY going to be around the corner!
Here is one of the baskets I shared with you yesterday. Please click here if you want to go back and see that post. I just love beings able to use both the DSP and Solid Card Stock!
Here are some tips and tricks to make this be a successful and fun project! Please feel free to email me if you have specific questions that I am not going over. It is my goal to help you see how much fun they are!
The Vanilla Coaster Board is KEY. You know that I have blogged about this before as I think that it is the best to for cutting out the thinlit words….click here to see that post.
You get (8) sheets that are 6" x 12" and you can cut it down to 4 1/2" X 8 1/4" to make the baskets. You will have plenty of extras to cut out sentiments.
You will have to cut (2) bases for each basket and then the same for how you wish to decorate it. I like to use the scalloped edge for the "girls" and the straight edge for the "guys"
You can see below that I used sticky strip. You can use whatever you like but I always recommend sticky strip for 3D projects. It really is super strong and convenient!
Let's touch on the "brads" and the "pearls"…you will see below that I took a pencil line to mark the half way point for both the box and the rim.
I then met them together and you can pierce a hole or if you have a super strong hole punch…that does the trick as well! I just love this finishing touch!
I hope that you are smiling. I just love them and I am looking forward to filling them with all sorts of goodies. The ideas are endless, you can easily put candy…a gift…a gift card…a small flower and then cover the top with fru-fru grass.
Wouldn't they be adorable to use as a centerpiece this way with a bunch of differnet baskets and coordination colors! Just love them!
You will see all of the various products that I used to make these goodies. You can click on the photo and you will be directed to the product and view it.
If you order the Berry Basket Die from me, I will be glad to send you (2) pieces of Vanilla Coaster Board as well as a print and coordinating card stock to make a basket.
I realize that this die is an investment, but trust me – you will get so much joy from making these for your family and friends. It is one tough, sturdy basket! You will be close to the mark to pick a Sale-A-Bration item, so please order wisely to maximize your earnings!
I do hope that these types of posts help you….pop back tomorrow, you are in for a treat!
