Holiday Basket Full of Treats

This basket is using the new Specialty Designer Paper (yes, 3 days in a row! I love it!) along with the Mistletoe Ribbon and new Holiday Merry Details Embosslit. This basket is quite elegant and hmmmmmmm....maybe for Valentine, too? The basket is exclusively from Stampin' Up and is called the Baskets & Blooms Sizzix Die. The only stamping involved: stamping the "To: From:" on the tag using Craft White Ink. Not too difficult - right?

Here is a close-up of the tag:

This is what is needed to complete this project: Real Red solid CS is used for the bottom of the Basket.

Tip: Because this paper is flocked, be sure to burnish with a bone folder:

The tag from the Basket & Blooms die was used and is perfect for this project. A scrap from the Specialty Designer Series Paper is used on the tag. Way cool: the SU Exclusive Merry Details Embosslit die is great for this tag. Mini Glue dots were used to attach the star and trees.

These are cut up scraps of Certainly Celery CS: cut them about 1/8" or smaller. Crumble then into a ball and you get matching filler. No need to run around to find the right color.

  • Ink: Craft White
  • Accys: SU Exclusive Baskets & Blooms Die, SU Exclusive Merry Details Sizzlits Die, Ribbon Originals Mistletoe Holiday Special, Fire Square Rhinestone Brad, Sticky Tape, Piercer, Mini Glue Dot

Hi Ann C - to answer your question: the "bag" (basket) is a Sizzix die. It is exclusive to Stampin' Up and is called Basket & Blooms. I believe there should be demonstrators in Scotland that can order this for you. Thank you for your comment. Patti
