Easter baskets

 I am soprecious about keeping all my scraps of Heartfelt Creations papers but time has come for me to start using them up. Here are two little baskets, ideal for giving easter eggs or small presents.

The small one i made with a 6x6 panel from the Butterfly Medley papers and the larger one with scraps left over from 2 beautiful memory albums that I made for Ruby Wedding gifts to celebrate 40th anniversaries with Blazing Poppies.


They went together really quickly, especially as I always make extra flowers every time and keep a large stash ready for any little emergency projects. Even the delicate die cuts were on hand - I find that when my mojo leaves, it soon returns if i have a session cutting and playing with HFC dies and white card. 

I made them with one paper collection each, but wouldn't they look lovely with rainbow coloured strips too? 

If you would like detailed instructions, please leave me some love here on my blog

  1. I saw these over at Heartfelt Creations and fell in love with them. I would love to have the instructions. I wish they would let us advertise our blogs as most of our posts are using their products and I think it would be advantageous to them. Please check out my blog as well and let me know what you think - http://nannyspansypatch.blogspot.com/.
