Tonight I am sharing with you a simple little basket that I created for this week's JUGS challenge. It's a Template Challenge. While I was at a stamp show a few months back, I picked up a Purse Basket template with a matching Basket Weave stamp at the Rubber Cottage booth. This is the first time I got to play with it, and it was super easy to create this little cutie :)
I traced the template onto Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury card stock in Soft Sand, stamped it with the basket weave in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, added some shading with my Memento Desert Sand marker, cut it out and assembled. Next, I added a trim around the top edge using some SU! ribbon in Certainly Celery and Scor-Tape. I created my flower using plain white paper flowers - I crumpled them up, distressed the edges, and stamped them with one of the stamps from my Tim Holtz set called Floral Tattoo (such an awesome set for just about anything) in Certainly Celery and So Saffron. I used a piece if the ribbon for the leaves and assembled the whole thing with a button brad. Similar brads were used to attach the handle. To finish the basket, I added an adhesive felt butterfly from K & Co. - is she sweet? Now, what to put inside... Any ideas?
