Easter basket and Easter Eggs - challenge 112

This is a class project, so I just happened to have the Easter basket made, and the Eggs done.  I used a tutorial from Splitcoaststamper here  to make the basket.
The eggs were my idea.

Basket: Chocolate chip, So Saffron, Designer paper (retired)
Eggs: Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Flower: Very Vanilla on a Chocolate chip base

Ink: Chocolate chip
Accessories: Scallop circle punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Oval punch, Scallop trim border punch, ribbon (non SU), straight pins with colored heads (non SU), styrofoam oval shapes (non SU)

Flower: Punch 3 scallops and bend and fold each piece until you are able to peel each piece into 2 layers.  Layer on top of each other, pierce with a paper piercer and insert a brad.  Gather up each layer into a ball, rotating each layer slightly.  When finished, unfurl flower until you have the shape you desire.  Mount on a chocolate chip scallop and attach to basket.

Eggs: Punch only the small flower using the Boho Blossom punch - in Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, and Chocolate chip.  Starting at the top, insert a pin in the center of a flower and into the stryrofoam egg.  Layer colors in a circle around the egg one color at a time or in a zigzag pattern - overlapping the flowers so the styrofoam does not show.  When finished, tie a bow with a ribbon of your choice and pin it to the top of the egg.

These are adorable. I can't wait to get to the store to buy some styrofoam eggs and make a bunch of these. How did you make the basket?
Thanks for sharing,
