An Easter Basket - Challenge 216 a 3D Project

For challenge 216 I thought I would share with you a project I did for Stampin' Fun and Friends.  The project was a card and coordinating candy container.  I won't share the card with you, but I will share the basket.  A tutorial is included.

3    3.  Apply sticky strip to the remaining tabs








4  4. Attach envelopes to each other for form the box








5  5. Bend the scallop top edges outwards.

8  8.  Make the handle.  First take an edge punch and punch along both long edges.  Then attach the strip of DSP to the middle of the handle.




9  9.  Attach the handle using sticky strip.



1  10.  Die cut 2 simple flowers



1   11. Using the hand held punch, punch a hole through all layers (including the flower) where the handle is attached to the box.  Attach the flower and insert the white fabric brad.














112.   Fill with straw and treats (real or otherwise)






Here’s an egg I made using an oval styrofoam shape and flowers from the Boho blossom punch and stick pins.
