Basket

Its been a really busy week at work and I have had lots of things to get ready for so I haven't been able to do that much in the way of crafting.  I did have a workshop on Thursday night though (hi Kim *waves*) which was brilliant - and we were joined by the lovely Chrissi!!!

Here is a photo of the make and takes that were made.


Its a lovely little gift box which is made from a square of card only measuring 7.5".  You can also make a cute little gift card out of the remaining piece of A4 card!  Thank you to Sara for her instructions (here).

I also made a 12x12" version which is stunning!  I think I may have to make a couple more for the craft fair I am doing on the 26th March...
The 12 x 12" card was scored at 4" on all sides and then scored diagonally from the each corner to the point where the first score lines cross.  All score lines were creased to give nice sharp edges.  Then holes were punched in each corner to for ribbon to be threaded through later.

I coloured the stamp from the Just Believe set using markers in Pretty in Pink & Pear Pizzazz and stamped onto Shimmer White card (this card is on offer until the end of March -30% off) repeating the stamping twice onto each of the four pieces.   The stamped card was mounted onto mats of Pear Pizzazz and put to one side.

Squares of Pear Pizzazz DSP were put on each corner and the stamped mats secured with glue (remembering to put them so they show the right way up when the box is finished!).  A square of DSP was also put on the inside (bottom) of the box.  To finish, ribbon was threaded through the holes of the corners of the box, pulled tightly and fastened in a bow.
