Easter Birds & Basket

Last night while egg decorating, I thought of this cute little woven basket & some "minty" birds. Again, I apologize for the quality of the photos. I'm sssooo missing my camera. :(


Using the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder, I embossed a 5 1/2"x 81/2" Baja Breeze cardstock then sponged with w/Crumb Cake Ink after I cut it into 1/2" strips. I wove my basket and added a handle with silver brads. I love my cute little birdies! In between the two scallop circles are York Peppermint Patties. I know that's not really Easter Candy but my husband likes Yorks! There's also a Chocolate PB Egg in there as well. ;)

Here's the basket by itself. You could also fill this with fresh little flowers too for May Day!

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze

Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Old Olive

Accessories: Sqaure Lattice Embossing Folder, Scallop Circle Punches - Large & Medium, brads, Rhinestones, Crystal Effects

The Easter Bunny dropped off a special surprise for me today! My nephew, Nicholas William was born at 1220p. He weighed in at 6lbs, 11 oz and perfect as can be! I'll post a picture when I get some.

Happy Easter to you!
