Gift Bag Punch Board Easter Basket

The busier I go, the less creative time I have (sometimes).  That’s the case of the last week.  Between getting ready for last weekend’s craft show and working on uniform fittings and alterations this week, I haven’t created much.  So, I was quite pleased to wake up this morning with not one but two ideas.  And, as I type this it may morph into a third idea. Yea!!

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board (another of my favorite very versatile tools),

Gift Bag Punch Board Easter Basket from

to create an Easter basket.  It’s smallish.  I seem to be obsessed with the idea of favors/treats, hostess gifts/remembrances.  I just love the idea of giving a little handmade something when you visit or meet up with a friend.  It makes you feel special!  I know this for a fact as I met my friend Gary last night for a quick chat and he had taken the time to make a little bunny box for me filled with his signature chocolate dipped cherries.  But, I digress ….a little.

 The front of the basket is decorated with a combination of Very Vanilla flowers and Pear Pizzazz leaves.  These elements were cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits.

And, here’s a side view of the Lost Lagoon basket.

Instead of a round or square basket, I’ve created one with all these little facets using the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Edit:  As promised earlier today, I’ve come back and posted the video.

Enjoy making these cute, quick baskets!

Thanks for stopping by.
