Fun & Cute Basket Ideas
Spring is a time for splashy colors and making fun, cute baskets to give to loved ones and friends! My favorite colors are the bright lime greens, soft yellows, and of course the pinks, so I decided to make up these baskets for birthday gift giving and of course May Day surprises. You can find the die cut shapes on Sizzix or Amazon which I will highlight under the pictures. Remember, there is a TON of ideas on the Sizzix site and really look around you may find a cuter die cut that fits your style. For example, the butterfly. There are many to choose from and if I had a more detailed one I would have used that, but didn’t. I found Amazon provided some better basket boxes and Sizzix was sold out of a few. I had to bounce between the two and so may you. You will need a Big Shot or Cuttlebug to cut your dies. Once your into this machine your creative juices will really rock! I also have come to know another company, The Fun Stampers Journey. I have a link to a gal who would be happy to help you, as well as get some of the die cuts from her. Her name is Pam and she is sweet. When you go to her link, you can click on the catalog and look around. FSJ also has the bags! So enjoy shopping and being creative. To make the basket topper you will need either one of these:The solid die cut from Sizzix the #661018, just put it in the search part. Daisy die from Amazon For a CUTE scallop but with more lace type flare try this one: You will see more…see what you like. Scallop lace from Amazon For these two Sizzix doesn’t carry anymore but put links from Amazon for you. Here is one Sizzix Circle Scallop #660021 for fun edging. Just put it in the search part of the site. Here is one idea the video here helps in how to make the basket handle for your bags. Want some of these cute bags? Lime green, purple, pink, yellow, and teal. Just email me and I would be happy to send you some! Free will offering! (they’re cheap!)
