Woven Easter Basket

Sometime last year, I came across this fabulous woven basket tutorial HERE, written by Laura Canale. I made a mental note to try it out one day. I needed an idea for the Verve Easter Project Parade and thought it would be perfect.

I used brown and pink cardstock to make a two-toned basket. The top strip is finished off with brads and piercing.

Side view:

I used Verve's Chocolate Bunnies stamp set for my image and sentiment. I first stamped the bunny, then I colored her and paper-pieced the large middle egg and stamped Happy Easter on it. I stamped the eggs and her bow again, colored them, cut them out and popped them on top for some dimension. Finally, I added some Stickles for a little bling.

Close up:

Hope you're having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
