A Tisket, a Tasket.....a Little Red & Pink Basket!


LOL....remember that little nursery rhyme? (Ok, so I changed the colors!) Well, the baskets we played with all those years ago, were nothing like this little gem. This cutie was created with my favorite....the Big Shot!
It's another "birthday in a box" for one of the gals at work.....almost done with them, then I need something for next year's birthdays!! Not an original idea....and I'll share the source and instructions, just as soon as I can find them!
Although it does not appear to be easy, it truly was quick and easy...and loads of fun to create! Inside the basket is a cello bag with all the necessities for a little party.....a Hostess cupcake, a birthday candle, mini box of matches, and a balloon! Fun?
Stamps: Oval All, Always (flower Center)
Inks: Riding Hood Red
CS: Pirouette Pink, Riding Hood Red
Misc: Build-a-Brad, Flowers-Daisy Die, Big Shot, Baskets & Blooms Die, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Organdy Leaves (non-SU), Bella Rose DSP, Large Flat Cello Bag, Silver Cord (to tie cello bag; retired)
NOTE: All materials used to make this basket are from SU, except contents and leaves.
To create the large daisy, see this post.
Here's the original tutorial that I found. Gretchen is an amazingly creative stamper.....stop in and see her blog. You are bound to be inspired!!
