Instructions: To see a larger photo of this project, click here. Project size: 3 3/4" X 4 1/2" X 2 1/2" Gift basket. Cut two of the largest size Octagons and a strip of card stock 3 1/4" X 7 1/2" from white heavy card stock. Score the white strip every 1 1/2" along the long side. Turn to short side and score at 3/8" on both sides. Cut along 1 1/2" score lines on both sides only just to the 3/8" score line and then cut each little flap at each end to make a V type flap (V with a flat bottom). You will need them cut like this to go around the corners of the octagons. Fold along each score line and fold flaps inward to glue to inside of octagons then set aside until both octagon tops are decorated.
Cut a straight edge octagon about 1/8" smaller all the way around than your white, from decorative paper. Then cut another piece of coordinating decorative paper with the scallop edge octagon and glue to white octagons using dries clear adhesive. Stamp, die cut and color images and shape slightly with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, then adhere with foam tape and glue to both sides of basket. Attach bird with a strip of acetate. Decorate the bottom scored strip to coordinate with basket front and back. Diecut the Delicate Border Basics die from white cardstock and adhere to the bottom as shown.
Glue bottom strip to basket front and back using tabs that you made on each side of 7 1/2" strip and let dry thoroughly. Glue Festive Holiday Die cuts to inside and outside of both sides at the top.
Attach ribbon to make a handle by punching holes on each end and threading ribbon through then tying a knot on each end (on the inside of box). Fill with Opalescent grass and candies or some other small gift.
