Papertrey Blog Hop






















Hello!

At the last minute I decided to make a project for the blog hop. I couldn't think what to make for it using buttons....then an idea came to me! LOL! I decided to make a basket full of flowers by using the new Picnic Plaid impression plate. I ran a piece of cream card stock through my cuttle bug with the picnic plaid impression plate cut it down to a small square rounded the bottom edges with a corner rounder. With the left over piece I used my MS border punch to give the basket a decorative edge. I inked the basket up with my CHAI. Oh yes! for the handle I just used a circle template and cut it to size and attached it to my basket. I use my new beautiful blooms die to make my flowers. I made the grass with my cricut (Plantin Schoolhouse). I added pop-up for the basket rim and a few flowers for dimension. That's about it and now I'm off to see what everyone else has done! Thanks for hopping by!
