Think Spring with a cute Berry Basket

I’m guessing many people are ready for spring.  I know I am so let’s think spring for a while.

I combined two new products from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog with the Gold Soiree Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog to create a cut spring feeling Berry Basket.

butterfly-berry-basketThe new Berry Basket Die is so cute and easy to put together.  You need to cut the card stock twice – I used Crumb Cake for this basket and the scalloped strip for the edge.  The plain strip I used for the handle.  The scalloped edge makes it easy to line the sides up evenly when you staple everything together.

For my basket I decided to add a liner using the Gold Soiree Designer Series Specialty paper.  I cut two pieces of the main portion of the basket.  Each one was glued to the inside of the Crumb Cake basket pieces.  If you don’t want to see staples on the inside of the basket then don’t adhere the designer paper to the inside edges until after you staple the scalloped band around the edges.
