Morning Peeps, it's my turn to do a tutorial over at Prickly Pear Rubber Stamps, so I thought now might be a good time to make one of my little Easter baskets using some of the new Spring stamps which you will find on the web site.
Start by cutting the A4 sheet of card down to a 21cm square and score in both directions at 7cm intervals so your piece is divided into nine equal squares, then score the four corner squares diagonally as below. Crease all scored lines and you will see the shape of the basket coming together. The four diagonal corners scores need to be carefully folded inwards.
Cut four of the five in half diagonally and stick to the inside of the folded corners and the fifth the inside base.
Stick the eight matching ones to the four inside and four outside square sides.
I have used Graphic 45 Secret Garden DP's, but any double sided or coordianting sheets works well.
Cut four shapes with your chosen die, then stamp and colour each and stick onto the four outer squares.......make sure you get them the right way up and not upside down as I did on my first attempt !!
You could equally use toppers or a different shaped die to tie in with the stamps or images you decide to use for your basket.
Finally pop an eyelet into each of the four corners, draw the basket up into shape and thread ribbon through the eyelets.
And walla, you have a pretty little basket to fill with Easter goodies..............I made one of these for a sample for C&C filled with Cadbury min eggs ................yep you guessed right there wasn't one egg in sight when it appeared on the show.
Thanks for popping in to take a peek and hope your Wednesday is a good one.
