A tisket, a tasket...a Woven Paper Basket!

Hello and happy Friday! With Easter just around the corner, I was inspired to create this woven Easter basket using a most wonderful tutorial by Miss Deb Felts over at Papercraft Planet. It really was not the daunting task I first thought it would be and Deb makes it very simple with her fabulous WOVEN BASKET TUTORIAL. I think the results are well worth the effort and it was a very enjoyable project to make!

I wanted to show a view of the inside of my basket so you can see how easy and pretty it is when you use a nice double-sided patterened paper. The papers I chose were Fancy Pants Designs "Garden Gate" from the Lilac House collection and Prima "Ferrulle" from the Alla-Prima collection. All off my stripes were inked with Bashful Blue SU! ink.

My Creative Time has the perfect sentiment for just about any project and I can't seem to ever go wrong with Teeny Tag Greetings stamp and stitched layer die set. With a bit of bakers twine and vintage ivory lace, along with 2 turquoise bling jewels, I think this tag is done! :)

And well, I just couldn't resist adding a few beautiful Prima roses to adorn the front of my basket--all I have to do is stick em on anything and they look exquisite!!!
I'm entering my woven paper basket into the following challenge:
The Papercraft Star challenge #90- Easter, a duck, a chick or an egg! (even though none are included on my basket, it is an Easter basket so I think it qualifies and if not, no worries) ;)
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you make a woven basket, please be sure to let me know--I would love to see it! xoxo
