Easter Treat Baskets

Today I have a little Easter project to share with you. I was inspired to create a pair of mini baskets, one for each of my nieces, using their favorite color PINK! You can never go wrong with pink and chocolate right now with them, so I am pretty sure they will love these little baskets. However, I won't be surprised if they want more chocolate than what the baskets are holding! LOL!!! If you are interested in creating your own little baskets, keep scrolling. The supply list, instructions and even my Gypsy file are available below!
Bo Bunny Supplies:
Vicki B Floweret and Loverly Patterned Papers
Double Dot Cardstock in Tutu
Vicki B Combo Sticker
Vicki B Petals
Vicki B Wrap

Other Supplies:
Cricut Cindy Loo Cartridge
(Flower Pot Box on page 75)
Scalloped Decorative Edge Scissors
Distress Ink (Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint)

Instructions:
Cut the basket shape at 5.8" x 11.46" from the Floweret and Tutu cardstock. (I layered the two papers to make the basket more sturdy, but it also gave a nice little edge to the top of the basket.)
Create the handle by cutting a 1" strip of Loverly and then trim the edges with scalloped decorative scissors.
Add the flowered border sticker and then attached the handle between the two basket layers. Embellish the baskets with the Vicki B wraps and flowers.
Create the leaves for the flowers using the green polka dot fabric which is one of the Vicki B Wraps. Cut the fabric into petals shapes and then scrunch the tip and hot glue it behind the flower.
Fill the basket with "grass" and chocolate and you are ready to go!

Lastly, before I go, I wanted to share a little scoop with you regarding a fabulous class you can take. Heidi Swapp & Jessica Sprague are teaching a class entitled Mouse, Paper, Scissors: MOM and they will be using...get this...Bo Bunny's gorgeous Gabrielle collection!!! During the class they will be creating a stunning Mother’s Day Card, a 2-page interactive scrapbook page layout and a mini-book. The class runs from April 18-29. For more details, stop by Jessica Sprague's website. A direct link to the class can be found HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! And as always I enjoy your comments and if you ever have any questions, please just ask!

HAPPY HUGS!

  3. Hi Juliana,

    I love the little Easter basket. I seem to be having trouble downloading the pattern. It says it's not supported by a file? I am using a Mac should I be doing something different? Thanks for your help, can't wait to get started making my baskets. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Karen...since I don't have a way to contact you hopefully you will see this. I am not sure what the problem is. You do need the Gypsy to be able to cut the file. I wouldn't think that the MAC would be the problem. Please let me know if you are still having trouble with this.
