Another Basket





Well, I did a funny thing and put my post for this blog on my other blog by mistake! I decided to leave it there as it looked so dang pretty and just put it here too. The worst is having to type it all over again, and I keep getting a bright red error message on blog..now what is that all about??


Anyhow, I made the basket and card using Stampin'Up! Pink Pirquette, Rose Red and Whisper White. The stamp sets used were SU Mr Twigster and Snow Swirled. I made Mr into a Mrs, just loved all that pink and white! The only non SU item I used was the ever faithful Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing Folder.


I watched 3 different tuturials on putting the bottoms on these baskets...interesting, as one does it like the dixie cups, with the tabs on the outside and the other two like me with the tabs on the inside. Putting them on the inside is a little trickier, but I like the finished look better....has anyone done it both ways, and which do you prefer!


Pictures were taken at dark, so they are a little darker then I would like, but I couldn't wait unitl daylight to post!

This basket and card are fantastic!! I'll have to check into trying this!!
If you're getting the same RED error I'm getting, it has to do with the auto save ... today's the first I've had it appear! I'm going to try and reboot and see if that solves the problem.
Great job and wonderful blog!!!
