Don't put all your eggs in one basket


As it is Easter Sunday I thought I would share an Easter basket I made for Papercrafter magazine.  I was asked to make three cards and two papercrafted items using the free papers in the magazine. I had the idea of a basket and with the help of Pinterest I found some measurements which I adapted for my basket. The trim is part of one of the papers and I simply punched holes in it and added some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

Challenges

Still time to enter my candy.
