Easter Basket

{March 28, 2010}

by Eileen Hull

It was so much fun making this mini Easter basket out of my Sizzix ScoreBoards Cupcake Holder Ruffle. It is just the right size for eggs I made while experimenting with some beautiful chenille yarn.

You will need:

Instructions for basket:

  1. Cut piece of tissue paper to size of mat board, 6" x 13". Apply a light coat of spray adhesive to mat board piece. Lay tissue on top of mat board and smooth out.
  2. Run mat board piece through Big Shot with right side facing the ScoreBoards Cupcake Holder die.
  3. Bend die-cut piece at each score line to shape into cupcake. Assemble basket with pink brads. Insert circle piece into bottom of cupcake basket and add dot of glue or double-sided tape to adhere bottom to basket.
  4. Punch two holes for handles on either side of basket.
  5. Twirl two pipe cleaners together to form handle piece and insert ends on either side of basket. Twist around each other to secure.
  6. Add embellishments and paper fill. Don't forget the jelly beans!

This Wednesday, March 31, starts the next Sizzix ScoreBoards Blog Hop! An amazing group of designers has been at work creating with the soon-to-be-released Celebrations dies. For a sneak peek at the dies and lots of great ideas for ways to use them, please visit my blog for the list of participating designers. Cast your vote for your favorite design after you have visited all the different blogs and checked out the great designs. There will be a prize for the designer creating the project that gets the most votes and also one to a random person leaving a comment on any of the participating blogs. Each week a new die will be featured. To make it even more interesting, the designers have been challenged to incorporate office supplies into the project!

Best wishes for a beautiful Easter!

From my (busy!) studio to yours,
