Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. We all love pretty way of gifting our handcrafted goodness and love. Today the basket speaks of the same. Take any color card stock and cut it as 8 1/4"x6 3/4". Score all sides at 2" and fold it. Take any pattern paper and cut it at 1/8" less for all the sides and adhere to it. Fold the box and adhere all the sides. For the handle cut a long strip of colored strip of paper that measures 1.5"x10". Cut a piece of pattern paper which measures 1"x10" and adhere to it. In order to decorate the handle die cut a piece of decorative border die and adhere to it. Once all done, tuck in the handle on both the sides.

To decorate the basket, die cut 2 pieces of decorate die from a white card stock. I have placed the die cuts on both opposite ends of the basket. For the flowers, I have stamped various pieces of the flowering dogwood using plum Archival ink from a white card stock. Die cut and then color the die cuts using Pink and Green archival ink. Sprinkle some water and dampen the flower die cut pieces. Shape them using the deluxe flower shaping kit and then add prills to the flower centers. Assemble the flowers with some frills and leaves. For the frills and filler flowers I have used the lush Lilac flowers and also the filler image colored using the zig brushes.
