Instructions: Basket measures 4" x 4" and is 8 1/2" high including handle. I used this http://wenchespapirverden.blogspot.com/2013/05/tutorial.html tutorial to make this basket. I converted the measurements from her metric ones to the following: cut Ruby Slipper 12" x 12", score at 4" and 8", turn and repeat scoring. Follow her instructions for cutting the flaps on each side.

Cut the large (12" x 12") designer paper sheet (pictured) as follows: 5 - 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and 2 - 7/8" x 12". Cut the 2 small (6" x 6") designer paper sheets of the same design as follows: 12 - 7/8" x 4 1/8". Ink all edges of designer papers with Shabby Shutters.

Cut white cardstock as follows: 12 - 1 3/4" x 4 1/8" and 1 - 1 3/4" x 12". Punch all long edges of the white pieces with the edge punch on both sides. (Note: the width of these pieces will depend on the edge punch you use as stated in her tutorial. The punch I used needed to be 1 3/4" wide in order to be 1 1/4" wide after punching. You will need to test this out on scrap paper in order to get the fit you want for your edge punch.)

Glue the 5 designer paper squares to the inside of the basket leaving two top, center sides unglued to insert the handles in. Glue the white and designer paper strips together centering them.

Follow the tutorial instructions for adhering the short strips to the outside of the basket sides. Assemble the basket and adhere together using Scor-Tape. Finish adhering the strips on outside of basket per the tutorial. Add handle with Scor-Tape inserting in unglued space between the designer paper and basket side. Add lace and trim on top edge of basket using Scor-Tape. Cut Ruby Slipper cardstock 3/8" wide and add to bottom of basket using 1/8" Scor-Tape to give the basket a finished look on the bottom. Make 2 multi-loop bows with red gingham ribbon and add to base of handle on each side using glues dots.

Stamp Berry Blossom Cling on Solar White with Black Onyx stamping off the color on scrap paper first to get a softer shade of black. Select two small blooms, spritz lightly with water on backs and shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Once dry, add Heart of Gold Prills to centers using Art Institute Glue. Glue to bow centers once dry using glue dots.
