I made these baskets in class and they fit these mini breads perfectly. I so loved the basket weave embossing folder and some ink to make the pattern stand out.
Been trying to create a touch of spring here and there in my home so I thought I would share. My newest edition ...he so reminds me of Peter Rabbit from Beatrix Potter.
Thinking about planting and so I picked up two of these mason jar style flower pots. My bunny here was on clearance last year after easter so I am finally getting to put him out and enjoy him.
Making my hallway hutch look a little springy... ! I got the vine greenery at the dollar store. I took out some antique flower plates from my mom that worked perfectly.
Something new....Tim Holtz new ink color called Cracked Pistachio (so pretty) and a new paper company for me to try called Trimcraft.
Really liking these metal word dies (Penny Black-Hugs, Kisses, and I Love You) in one package and Impression Obsession in the other. They are small and perfect for cards or scrap pages when you don't want to fight with a machine to die cut these.
Some papers are double sided and some are not. Some have a shimmer and a few had a touch of gloss. Great for shabby chic look or garden tea.

This little basket is so easy to make and fast to put together. All you need is a score board, scissors, and glue. I plan to make mini carrot/ginger breads to fit inside. There's even room for shredded paper to package it nicely. I embossed the outside and added a touch of ink to enhance the basket weave pattern
Love the natural look of twine to make some little baskets that could later be used for any occasion.
I've been wanting to try one of these chicks...Since I didn't have all the tools to make this my girlfriend made me a cutting file for my silhouette machine. Makes it easier to do multiples....
