Fancy Favor Die Cut Easter Basket Weekend Project

Sorry for the late post, I was wanting to play with the Sizzix die cuts tonight and thought I would make an Easter Basket. I even managed to get a Sweet Treats cup to work with it too! I got so wrapped up in playing I lost all track of time. So onto the specs of the basket!

I cut the basket out using Pale Plum card stock. The handle is made using a strip of the Pale Plum with ribbon on top. It is attached using white brads.

I tied a white ribbon at the bottom. It just looked like it needed a little something there.

Before I assembled the box I punched a round hole in the middle of the front part and added the Sweet Treats cup.

For the scallop around the Sweet Treats cup I used Scalloped Nestabilities for both the white and the "Shades of Spring" decorative paper.

The little bunny on the bottom right is from the Stampin' Up! "Eggcoutrements" set. That set has an adorable border image in it and I wanted to use it on the bag but I didn't have enough room at the bottom for it. I'm sure I'll find something else to use it on!

I added some fun colored paper Easter grass inside and and added the candies.

When making this don't fill the Sweet Treats cup until you are ready to finish the whole bag. Mine kept falling over and it bent the one corner of the bag. Once it was filled with the paper and candies it balanced out and stood up nicely.

Isn't it cute? What a nice way to brighten up a co-worker's desk or even a great teacher gift! Lots of people you can give this to!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
