Easter basket from card stock

For this basket, I used the Connie Stewart (Stampin up demonstrator) YouTube tutorial.  While not 100% the same, I modified a few elements like the embossing folder, colors, stamp, ribbon, and brads.

This basket was made using 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 inch Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  The large scalloped ovals are from the 2013 SU! Spring Catalog Oval Framelits collection.  The handles were also made from combining two framelits and cutting that oval in half.  (For step-by-step directions look for Connie's video).

I used the Cloudy day embossing folder (yes, I like that one a lot!) and then assembled the pieces. I punched out of Blushing Bride with the modern label punch and then from Very Vanilla the stamped greeting to add some Easter-like colors.  I affixed it to the basket by using some green brads.

Then I added a tag with some scrap purple ribbon tied into a bow.  The tag was cut from the smallest oval in the framelits collection.  The stamp is from Impress Rubber Stamps out of Seattle and is a chocolate bunny.

Inside (not visible) I purchased recycled paper Easter grass in green and added some Lindt chocolate bunny minis and Lindt truffles along with a couple Ritter chocolate squares.  There is a string showing from the handle which has since been removed.
