Spring / Easter Basket

Is this not the cutest little basket?! I’m grateful to both Kathy Howes and 05Trishka for the inspiration! I’ve “Pixiefied” my version so the strips work with a 6″ strip of paper.

Warning… once you start making these baskets, you won’t be able to stop! 🤣 Here’s the pair I made using 2 different DSP patterns:

Here’s a “getting started” template for reference (not to scale) to show you how to start with 5 of the strips of paper:

The video tutorial will be your best resource for putting these together – super easy!!


  • 6″ Version (pictured above):
    • Cut 6 strips to 11/16″ x 6″
    • Optional: Cut 1 of the 6 strips to 1/2″ for a narrower handle
  • 8-1/2″ Version:
    • Cut 6 strips to 1″ x 8-1/2
    • Optional: Cut 1 of the 6 strips to 3/4″ for a narrower handle
  • Lay 1 strip horizontally
  • Adhere 4 strips vertically as pictured in template above and assemble as shown in video


Patchwork/Quilt Card

This is a really fun card to create! Thanks to Vy Tran for the inspiration for this card layout! You can also take this card up a “quilting notch” by adhering the DSP panels to a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White cardstock and dry embossing with an embossing folder!

Here’s the card layout for reference:


  • Card Base – 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored & folded along the long side at 5-1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper:
    • 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ (2 pcs)
    • 2-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ (3 pcs – portrait))
    • 1-1/4″ x 2-5/8″ (2 pcs – landscape)
    • TIP: Choose 4 double-sided non-directional patterns and cut 1-1/4″ strips (2 at a time) to create panels.


Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!
