Basket Tutorial with the Medallion dies

When I get new dies I like to cut them out and just play with them.
It was by my hubby turning this die upside down
I came up with this idea, until that point I didn't see it as a basket!
Here is how you can make one too.


Step 1: Die cut two of the Arch Medallion dies.

Step 2: Cut a piece of card 7" x 5 1/2" and score at 2" on all sides.
Cut the corners to make tabs,

Step 3: Fold along the score lines and adhere to make a box.

Step 4: Adhere the Arch Medallion die cuts to either side of the box and 
trim the little notch on the bottom so that they stand flat.

Step 5: Cut two strips 1" x 11 1/2" and one 1 1/4" x 11 1/2"
Die cut the sides of the larger piece with the Swirling die.
Adhere the two other pieces either side of the die cut strip.

Step 6: Stamp 2 x Blossom Filled stamps in brown ink and
colour with inks and a blending pen.
I used Toffee Crunch, Bamboo Leaves and Berrylicious.

Die cut the images with the coordinating die.

Step 7: Cut apart the Dogwoods and adhere over the handle leaving a 
small gap for the handle to be adhered to the box.

Step 8: Adhere the handle to the box and more flowers on the sides.

Step 9: Adhere a flower and leaves along the top of the box side
where the handle and box meet.

Decorate as you choose, these would make fun gift bags for bridesmaids
at a wedding or name place settings too! They could be filled
with confetti for each guest, there are so many ways to use this!

Have lots of crafty fun!
