Good morning to you all and thanks for popping by. I was one of the Top 3 picks over at Country View January challenge and was asked to be a GDT, so of course I accepted. The theme for this months challenge is 'Paper Chase' and as it's their 1st blogaversary they are offering TWO prizes this month of a £20 voucher to Country View Crafts shop.
I decided to do something different and make a basket which would be ideal to hold a birthday or mother's day gift, or you could make a bunch of paper flowers to sit in it, but my favourite would be to fill it (to overflowing) with easter eggs.
Apologies for the quality of the photos - it was a dull day when they were taken - it looks so pretty IRL especially when the sun catches the flowers and gems.
The square part of the basket made from a 12x12 paper measures about 4 inch cubed and the flowers, butterflies and tags are all made using dies. Then all that was needed was a piece of lace, card candi and some gems from my stash to finish it off.
Here's what I used -
Papers ~ Dovecraft, Hunkudory, plain white photocopier paper
Dies ~ Cheery Lynn: large rose, medium rose, miniature rose, small exotic butterfly
Memory Box: fancy blossoms
Marianne Creatables: LR0154, LR0156
Punch ~ Dovecraft: daisy
From my stash ~ lace, card candi, Papermania gems
So why not head over to the challenge, check out the rules and join in the fun
