Good Friday morning, y’all!! I feel obligated to say….stop touching your face and wash your hands.
There. Public Service Announcement….DONE!
If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
I got the idea for this sweet treat basket from my friend Sue Prather – who gave all of us one last weekend at our Spring STAMPede event!
This is so easy. 🙂
Where Sue used some Best Dressed DSP, I used some of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – from the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite (which y’all can get on 1 April – or NOW if you decide to join the team). I decorated mine with sweet Daisy Lane flowers. Take a look-see:
With my Simply Scored board, I scored at 2″ and 4″ on one side of the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP – rotated the paper 90 degrees (doesn’t matter which way) – and scored again at 2″ and 4″.
Next, I used my Paper Snips to cut from the edge of the paper to the crossing score line. I did that on two opposing sides. As shown by the dotted lines below.
When I was done snip-snipping, my paper looked like this:
I placed Tear-and-Tape Adhesive on the inside of the DSP on opposite corners…
Then I removed the tape and brought the tips of the outside corners together – tucking the center square panel on the inside.
The end result…
I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the inside flap so that it would help to make everything more secure and tidier! 🙂
Ready to decorate!
I used a length (about 7 1/2″) of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the Tropical Oasis Suite) for the handle – using a craft stapler to adhere it on the inside of the basket at the points.
On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two each of the large and small daisies from the Daisy Lane set in Daffodil Delight. Then I punched them with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.
With the Leaf Punch, I punched three Mint Macaron and three Old Olive leaves. I creased each little leaf with my fingers and adhered three each on both sides of the basket with Liquid Glue.
I popped the small daisies atop the large daisies with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Then I adhered them over the top of the leaves with Liquid Glue.
A Perennial Essence Flower Center in the middle of each daisy finished off my Spring Baskets!
Et Voila! These little baskets are so cute and so easy and…how many ways can you think of to use them? Mother’s Day? Easter Brunch? May Day? Baby Shower? Bridal Shower? Think of all the gorgeous papers we have to choose from and the myriad of decorative options we’ve got with Stampin’ UP! The Daisy Lane and two Daisy Punches are spot-on-perfect for any and everything Spring-y!! And…the paper. The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is gorgeous!! I hope you like – and will give these a try right now!!

Finn Fan Fix
Yesterday we started hardening the transplants.
Toted all the little trays and water-bottle “pots” to just outside the garage door for a little while in the afternoon. Gotta toughen up the plants in preparation for going in the beds!!
And I cut some daffodils (and a couple of tulip tree flowers!!)
It’s just the best time of year, isn’t it?!?
Finn supervised from the golf-cart.
That’s kind of his jam. Supervising.
If he had actual hands – not adorable paw-hands, he’d be holding a coffee cup in one hand and have the other in his pocket in the ways of site supervisors the world over.
No offense to site supervisors! 😉
