Bloggers Challenge - template or die cuts!




This week's challenge was to use either a template of some sort, or a die cut of some sort. I chose to use a template for this adorable little Easter basket!
I mounted the sides with Sticky Strip, but I angled them as far out as I could, to make the inner basket part just a wee bit bigger. You could plant your sides straight up and down if you wanted.

I'm trying to figure out how to get the file linked here...so bear with me.

Stamps: A Good Egg, "to one of my favorite peeps" (from Amuse)

Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Barely Banana, Soft Sky, Glossy White

Ink: Basic Grey, Certainly Celery

Other: 1 1/4", 1 3/8", Scallop circle punches, Crafter's Knife, 1/16 hole punch, stampin' Dimensionals, Barely Banana/Only Orange/Pretty in Pink markers, corner rounder, White grosgrain ribbon
