As promised, I'm back to show you the second project from my February class - a cute basket, made with the larger of the Two Tags die. This would be perfect to hold an Easter or Mother's Day, or anytime treat.
Like this card, the main feature is another beautiful Cathy Clark style flower.
This one is made with pool party card (which I'm kind of obsessed with atm.) I forgot to mention how I made the leaves last time, so I'll share that now. I punched the largest leaf from the Blossom Builder punch, scored a slight curve from end to end & sponged the edges & centre with a little old olive ink.
I've seen quite a few of these baskets around, but I got my starting measurements from a tutorial by the fabulous Bronwyn Eastley, who demonstrated lots of great ideas using this die at SU Regionals in Tassie. I tend to work in cm's so I fiddled around with sizing & made this almost square version, which is about 7cm deep.
This was my first version - riding hood red - which is pretty much the same size as Bronwyn's - approx 4.8cm deep.
Both baskets are wrapped with a pretty piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP & the basket handles are secured to the base with 2 mini brads.
Hope you like this little project. I'll definitely be making more of them.
Before I go, I really recommend you check out Bron's two tags tutorial, as she shows so many fantastic ways to use this die. You can find it here: Bronwyn Eastley's fantastic Two Tags die tutorial. Don't forget to leave a comment on her blog to say thanks!
Almost forgot to show you this quick & cute little tag I made at the same time with the Two Tags die, used for it's original purpose. The tag has a score line which allows it to fold onto itself & lock under the little tab. I used a smaller flower - this one is just the doily & boho punches. I added a sentiment from the Friendly Phrases set, on more DSP & some lovely coral SAB ribbon. Simple, but very cute I think
Next time, I'll show you a project for a workshop I ran for a friend, earlier this month.
Hope you're having a fun weekend. Thanks for visiting & hope you come again soon. Leave a comment if you have any questions, just want to say hi.
Inky wishes, Di
Edited to Add - 21 Mar: Now with instructions! I've now added my class instruction sheet to make these baskets, so I hope you find this useful. Any questions, just leave me a comment
