The basket is made from the retired Baskets and Blooms die, and does require a bit of fussy measurements, and weaving, but the end result is worth it.

- Basket is woven using Flowering Fields DSP. The strips are sponged with Soft Suede ink prior to weaving.
- A 1/2" strip of Hello Honey cardstock is used for the handle. It is attached to the basket using large silver brads. A piece of Hello Honey ribbon was wrapped around the handle and made into a bow.
- The "Happy Easter Bunny", a retired stamp, is rather a large stamp. But I stamped the entire image, coloured only the bunny using a blender pen, and then cut the image out. Then 2 ovals were die cut using the ovals framelits - one in Whisper White, and the second larger one in Calypso Coral. Both were sponged with Soft Suede before the cut out bunny was attached.
- After adhereing it to the front of the basket, the curved "Happy Easter" was cut out, the edges sponged, and adhered over the bunny.
- The tag was made using the banners framelits with the sentiment from "For Peep's Sake"- another retired stamp set. Hello Honey was stamped across the sentiment and eggs using the Work of Art stamp set. A 1/8" hole was punched in the top, and it was attached to the handle using White Baker's twine.
- Put some Easter grass inside the basket, some styrofoam eggs (or a treat which I prefer) and whola you are ready for Easter. It would made a great hostess gift
