I was stumped about what to create for this 'basket' theme. Then I finally told myself that I'll just have to make an ACTUAL basket! I was worried for the time consuming task ahead of me.... but these adorable mini baskets? 5 minutes tops! I was so excited I made 3! AND I MADE A VIDEO!
I got the original idea for the baskets from Crafting Clare's Paper Moments, which I found through Pinterest. I cut out a few steps to make it easier, and also changed the design a bit... again for quick and ease!
The cardstock I used is all from the same DCWV stack called "Melon Twist"... its been a favorite of mine for a while. It's so perfect for spring and summer occasions!
The supply list for this project is short...
5" x 4" cardstock plus 1/2" x 4" strip
Adhesive (any kind)
Optional - Distress Ink
I give all the steps in my YouTube video here! Thanks for watching and subscribing and thumbs-upping :)
I may have filled my little basket with lemon Girl Scout Cookies.... but jelly beans and peeps are also an option ;)
