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
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!
