Easter Basket Workshop & Tutorial

This was such a fun workshop.  We started with the basket (video instructions can be found at StampTV where the videos are Gift Basket Part 1 and Gift Basket Part 2).  The flowers ideas are the brain child of a wonderfully creative consultant Michelle Auten.

Back side of basket is shown below.

The picture below is showing a closeup of the back side of the basket.

Supplies include:  Sophia Paper Pack; Circle Together & Sensational Seasons stamp sets; Retired spring buttons; hollyhock, white daisy, pear cardstock (CS); pear, hollyhock & blush inks and markers; CTMH Watercolor Pencils; blender pen; new 2" scallop circle punch; 1-1/4" circle punch; other circle and scallop punches; border punch; oval & scallop oval dies.

Below is the pattern for the sizes I used (which is different from the video I referred to earlier).  You can click on the picture and it will show you an enlarged version. 

Basket:  8" x 8" square piece of cardstock;   Pear CS layer: 4 squares 2"x2" and 4 rectangels of 3-1/4" x 2; next layer:  4 squares 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" B&T#1 and 4 rectangles 3"x1-3/4" B&T#2

Handle:  1.5" x 12" piece of cardstock; next layer 1" x 12" B&T paper and 1/2" x 12 border
This is so darling in the CTMH papers, but the other thing is that once the Easter candy is gone, you have a place to put your beautiful CTMH paper flowers!
