Easter Baskets....

Good afternoon everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Today I have some Easter Baskets to share.

I saw this fabulous tutorial by Jenny earlier in the week and just had to give it a go.....

Please pop over to Jenny's blog and have a look at all her wonderful creations.....she really is very talented and her cards are gorgeous.

I made three baskets....

one for my daughter Brogan 



and one each for my nieces Chloe and Charlotte


I loved the way Jenny had chosen card to give a basket effect and as I'm a huge fan of Kraft and had loads of off~cuts on my desk this is what I plumbed for to make the actual basket although I have now seen quite a few of these sweet little baskets made with all sorts of beautiful papers around blogland this week....

The flowers are from my stash and the leaves are a punch that I've had forever. I die~cut the butterflies from glitter card and added gems to their bodies.

I decided not to add any ribbons, tags or extras as I was happy with just the flowers although I did put a flower arrangement on both sides of each basket.


I would like to enter these baskets into the following challenges:~

Jelly Park Challenges ~ Pretty Pastels
Crafty  Creations ~ # 215 ~ Easter
The Sisterhood Crafters ~ Easter/Spring
Tuesday Throwdown ~ # 140 ~ Make Something Dimensional


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Have a fabulous Easter.

And 'Thank You' Jenny for this wonderful tutorial.
