SU Easter Baskets

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone that celebrated Easter had an enjoyable holiday. Today I am sharing the little Easter Baskets that I made:


The colors I used (clockwise from back right) are Pink Pirouette/Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue/Marina Mist, So Saffron/Crushed Curry, and Almost Amethyst/Wisteria Wonder. The Happy Easter sentiment is from one of my favorite retired SU stamp sets, Well Scripted.

To make the basket, start with a 6 x 6 piece of card stock, score at 2 all around, cut on the score lines on two opposing sides, and assemble the basket. The handle measures 1 1/2 x 10 1/2, with the overlay measure 1 x 10 1/2.

A close-up of my basket:


Here are the baskets set on the kitchen table (where we had dessert):
