Easter baskets

How adorable are these - little mini Easter baskets.  Had so much fun making these little guys.  I started with a 4 x 5.5" rectangle of Soft Suede cardstock and ran it through the SU Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder - then cut off 1/2" for the handle leave a 4 x 5" piece for the basket.
With the long edge of the rectangle against the top of Simply Scored - I scored at 1,2,3 and 4" then turned the piece so the short side was at the top and scored at 1.5 x 2.5"  Fold on all score lines and cut the flaps that were scored at 1,2,3 and 4" up to the center section.  Then folded the outside one in first and connected, brought up the other flaps and connected.  Cut a circle to cover all the loose ends.  I had punched a small hold in the ends of the handle, then used the crop-a-dile to punch through all the layers of flaps and the folded circle and attached all with the gold brad.
Added a few flowers, some little leaves and some iridescent filler to make this adorable little basket all ready to fill with some yummy treats.
 Stinkin' cute!!  Now I have to make up a bunch of these little guys before Easter arrives.  ~Maureen
