A Fun Little Daisy Basket

Good morning friends, TGIF!!!  Today I have a fun little basket to show you.  I saw the idea for this basket at last year's convention.  You start with a box cut with the Fancy Favor die and Pool Party cardstock and you cut off an 1 1/2" from the top.  Then you cut random slits down the sides until you get almost to the bottom and thread strips of Whisper White cardstock in a basket weave pattern (do you remember making these as kids?)  Once that's complete you use sticky strip to adhere the box together and run a piece of Calypso Coral Ruffled 3/8" ribbon around the top of the box.  Next I cut another strip of Pool Party added strip of Domestic Goddess DSP that I punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch.  I love the pretty flower on the front and it was a breeze to make with the Daisy die (retiring, boo hoo!) and cut flowers with Whisper White and Calypso Coral cardstock and then alternated the flower pieces.  I used one of the small circles that were cut out with the die to add to the center and finished it with an In Color Printed brad.

This box is so bright and cheery and will be perfect to add some treats and give to your special friend, or even mom (remember Mother's Day is just two days away).

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

Pin It!
