Today’s project is my take on a quick and easy basket. AND it’s perfect for spring, especially since it uses our lovely Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper!
I made this basket with a moving handle so it is more like a picnic basket than an Easter basket. Don’t you love the little bit of lace on the handle? I made this with our Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and it was so easy to do with just a small strip of Whisper White card stock.
Want to whip some of these up too? They are a nice size so add a little shredded paper and treat and you’re set to go. You can make a ton of these with just one stack of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and it comes in a variety of spring like colors so they are perfect for giving to others!
Here is my a video tutorial and PDF for you –

I hope you’ll enjoy making these cute little baskets too.
On a personal note I thought that I’d finally share the home improvement project that I was working on with you. I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago and then realized last night that I’d taken the pictures but didn’t share them. Sigh. Some days… lol Can you relate?
Any how here is what was keeping me busy – I still have a couple of finishing touch of things I need to do, but it’s all good.
I had a great time watching my son work on and build the cabinets and then watching the kitchen come together after dreaming about it for so long. I’m bias, but I think my son has done a great job. It turned out beautifully and I really like the look of the hickory. Johnathan did a beautiful job of choosing the grains so they look nice. I love doing projects like this together – great family time and memories being created in addition to a functional end result. You’ll get to see it yourself the next time to come to class, since this space is for our use and will make things easier than the old temporary kitchen set up.
