Weaved Easter Basket!







This was fun.....but very time consuming!Remember when we were kids in school, and we weaved paper to make baskets.........exactly what I did here! I cut strips, then weaved them together to make this basket! I used the new My Minds Eye paper, love the "spring" colors in it!! I also cut strips of white paper and folded them for the inside of basket! I colored Tilda with my distress inks, added some flowers and punched leaves! I also added some white seam binding around edge for a finishing touch! I also added a paper lace border I made with my MS punch! Made the handle with that same punch!This is for Just Magnolia monthly challenge(anything goes), Creative Stamp Friends(Spring), Dutch Magnolia Lovers(anything goes). Thanks so much for stoppin' by and taking a peek! Teresa*
