Spellbinders Easter Lattice Floral Basket

Hello friends! Today I have these vintage Easter baskets to share with you created with Spellbinders Lattice Floral Basket die set from my Celebrate the Day Collection. This basket is quite simple to assemble, all the work is in the die. The flower dies and handle are also included in this die set.





Instructions:

1. To create basket base, die cut 2 pieces with Lattice Floral Basket die set from designer cardstock.




2. Apply double sided adhesive tape on tabs and attach both pieces together at the base of basket. You can also use glue.


3. Apply 1/8” wide double sided adhesive tape around right square on 4 sides as pictured below. Fold at scored lines before next step.



4. Overlap left square on top of right square with adhesive tape and press together. Repeat this process with 4 sides to form basket base.



5. Die cut multiple flowers with flower dies included in the set. Color edges with distress inks using foam applicators and Tool ‘N One. Shape flowers with stylus tips and then glue petals together to form flowers.



6. I used 2 petals for the flower and 1 petal for the leaves to form the flower. Embellish center of flowers with Nuvo Crystal Drops.



7. Die cut handle twice and glue together for a stronger handle. Make a bow with silk ribbon and then adhere to center of handle. Adhere smaller flowers to the handle. Attach handle to basket using glue.





8. Glue larger flowers to four sides of basket as pictured below. Fill basket with Easter chocolate eggs and your basket is done.

My new Spellbinders Collection - Celebrate the Day

Hello Friends,
I would like to announce that my new collection of die sets for Spellbinders is available now. This collection is called Celebrate the Day and it has 10 new die sets that you would love for that special day. You can click HERE to go to the Spellbinders website to see all my die sets. Here are some pictures of the projects you can create with these die sets.
































These projects are really easy to make, all the work is in the die. The dies have all the cutting and scoring lines for you. I will be showing you how to make some of these projects really soon. 
The Pop-Up sentiment dies are great for the front of the card as well as the inside of the card as you can see in the picture below. They fold flat when you close your card. 



We had so much fun at the CHA Creativation 2017 Trade Show in Phoenix, Arizona a couple of weeks ago. The Spellbinders booth was beautiful, they did a great job with my display table. 






My friend Stacey who owns Scrapbooking Made Simple on-line store, has all my new Spellbinders die sets on sale right now! You can go HERE to order and she will ship them to you. 


Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
