Instructions: Size: 1 3/4" deep, 4 3/4" wide, 6 3/4" tall. Cut 2 Lattice Swirl Gateway Dies from white. Cut 1 piece of white 2 1/4" x 9” then score the strip at 2 1/2" and 6 1/2" leaving 2 1/2" end. Score down both long sides at 1/4" making a 1 3/4" wide side and bottom of basket (this can really be any width you desire just be sure to add 1/2" for the tabs on the long sides [1/4” each] and the other scores would be the same). On each side at the short score make a notch from edge to long side score line, this enables nice folds for a box without excess paper.

Fold on all score lines then glue to 1 of the die cuts about 1/2” from the bottom (sides will tilt in slightly). When completely dry, glue the other die cut so that bottoms, sides and tops match then glue the top “handle” together about 1” across but no further down the sides.

Stamp various butterflies from the Small Floral Butterfly set, die cut and color with preferred coloring method. If you watercolor make sure to stamp butterflies on smooth watercolor paper to hold up to the water also use Archival or Versafine Claire to stamp with as Memento is best with alcohol inks and may bleed with water. Add some shimmer to the wings mixed with a tiny bit of water. Paint glue around the edges of butterflies and sprinkle with Ultrafine glitter.

Arrange butterflies on the front of basket and 1 for the inside of the back, seen from the front. Glue onto basket then add a multi-loop bow to the top.edited Stuff basket with pearlescent grass and it is ready to fill with treats.
