I do not normally post on the weekends.  But I had a cute idea that was appropriate to share for a little Easter project.  I had the idea to use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make a little basket to hold 3 X 3 cards and envelopes.  After I made it, I thought it would make an adorable Easter Basket.  I did a video and hopefully you could make some of these for your little ones.

If you get my blog posts through an email, you may need to open it into a web browser to see the video.  I haven’t got all of the kinks out of the process yet.  They say practice makes perfect…..I sure hope so!!

I decorated the basket with the Welcome Easter little chick stamp.  I stamped it on a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The chick is stamped a little above half way on the die cut.  I used the design of the die , where you can see the chick’s top knot, as a line.  I scored across there and then secured it to the bottom of the basket and to the side.  You could also simply cut off that section and adhere the piece flush with the bottom of the basket.

The chick is stamped in Gray Granite Ink and colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  The yellow is both of the Daffodil Delight Blends.  The feet and beak are colored with the Light Mango Melody Blend.  I went around the chick with the Light Pool Party Blend.

The DSP is from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and is one of my famous “back side” of the paper.  I have a tip in constructing the basket.  Put the DSP on while the box is laying flat.  I messed up in the video and forgot to do that!!  Of course I would make a mistake 🙂

Here is a picture of the 3X3 holder that I made originally

I hope you can use this idea to spread some extra cheer this Easter.  It will be different for all of us.  Take care!!
