Asia Week: Dim Sum Basket

This is a favorite project: so CUTE! The finished size for this basket is 2-1/2" diameter. All images are stamped with Staz On Black Ink on Whisper White CS, then using the Stampin-Up Aqua Pen, apply the color to the images. They are cut out and placed on the "doilie" with a dimensional. The Smiley Dim Sum Character is attached to the Wicker Dim Sum Basket with mini glue dots. This wicker basket can be found in any Chinatown kitchen section.

Look what is on the inside. This is the 1st "tray"

Here are all the Dim Sum "trays" revealed:

Patti, your dim sum looks so delicious, my jaw falls. I am Chinese too, so this Sunday I will certainly go to Chinese restaurent to have dim sum(s) with my husband and my son; glutten Rice wrapped in lotus leaves is one of my son's favorite food among dim sum. What is yours? By the way, the restaurent is located at Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.
Oh, where can I find these stamps?
I want to make some thing like your project to give out to our church fellows, too, it is so cute-ty that it will make them laugh with watering mouths.
