SUINKWWC36 - Easter Greetings Basket

Good Evening! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another WHACHADOIN' WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE at Storage Units, Ink & More. This week's challenge is to make a basket. There are so many fun templates and tutorials out there. You can either create a May Day basket or share an Easter basket that you made for this year. Other ideas are to make a Mother's Day basket, flower basket, or shower favor basket. The possibilities are endless. So, do you want to play along? So, do you want to play along? If so, check out THIS post for more information. If you upload your creation to SCS, remember to use keyword SUINKWWC36.

For this week's challenge, I am showing you an Easter basket that I made. I used a super cute (and easy) template by Waltzingmouse on SCS. You can check out her template HERE. I printed the template on a sheet of double sided SU! Raspberry Tart Designer Paper. I adhered four strips of Rose Red cardstock on each side of the basket that I punched with my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edger Punch. The handle is from the same designer paper and the flowers and brads are from Taylored Expressions.

The Easter Greetings sentiment is from the YOU'RE SOME BUNNY SPECIAL set from Storage Units, Ink & More. I stamped the sentiment is Rose Red and the scalloped circle is Kiwi Kiss.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out more baskets on the SUINK Blog.

Such a pretty basket, laura! Love the papers you used! And the eggs look too pretty to eat in that basket too! :)


Oh this is really pretty, Laura - and I love that it's darker Easter colors and away from the pastelly versions of these colors. The scalloped edging is perfect and delicate - great on this one!
