Toni had everything prepared for this one. She used the wonderful Fancy Favor Die and cut it out using textured Crumb Cake. Then the curvy top was trimmed off. And I don't know anyone else who has mastered the Direct-to-Paper (DTP) technique quite like Toni....she is definitely the Queen in my book! You can see this basket has a 2-tone look....Toni used Crumb Cake ink and colored it using the DTP technique. That textured cardstock really looks amazing with this technique!
She also slit the basket from the top down to allow for the weaving. For the weaving, we simply did basic weaving with strips of Crumb Cake CS. That's it! Each portion was adhered at the top with Sticky Strip....or you could use Mini Glue Dots, which is what I used.
The handle....well, it was simply adhered using 2 Gold Brads on each side....Toni also did DTP on that strip as well!
The second photo shows the close up of the little tag (you can click on it to make it a little larger). This set really didn't do a thing for me when I saw it in the Holiday Mini....it's called Gift Givers and each stamp image coordinates with one of our punches. I think I've fallin in love with it after this project....it's just so stinkin' cute!! As you can see, this turkey image works with the Curly Label Punch. (One lady at Toni's class liked the set so much she purchased it AND every single punch that coordinates with it!! WOW!) On our basket, we simply colored in the image with markers. The second photo gives a better close up of all the details. This was really fun....can't you just see it on your Thanksgiving table?!!
