Easy Easter Baskets

Here are some cute little Easter Baskets I came up with that use directions similar to those of a 2-4-6-8 box, but I've altered the dimensions a bit to create my baskets. You can download the pattern I created here.

Notice I added some Anchored Rub-Ons to my plastic eggs. I also added some Dew Drops to my flap and to the side where my handle meets my basket.



Details:
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Wheel - Solitude (SU Level 1 Hostess)
Other - Anchored Rub-Ons












Here's another fun basket. For this one I used the Aged Metal Technique from the 02/08 TJNL. To make sure my metal pieces stuck to my card stock - I adhered them with sticky strip.



Details:
Card Stock - Lovely Lilac
Ink - Black Stazon
Other - Shimmer Sheets, Paisley CB Folder, Anchored Rub-Ons






















For this last one - I also used my Paisley CB Folder. I scored my card stock per my pattern, embossed 2", took my card stock out and embossed the rest of my card stock. Re-score your card stock so that you don't end up with cracks in your paper. Apply your ink DTP to add some depth. Again, I've added some Dew Drops as my embellishment to my basket.


Details:
Card Stock - Pixie Pink
Ink - Pretty in Pink
Other - Paisley CB Folder, Dew Drops, Anchored Rub-Ons
