Felt Baskets

Aren't these the cutest? They turned out much better than I anticipated. They are soooo cute! They are made using the Basket and Blooms SU Exclusive Die. I didn't use the bottom but the flowers came in handy and worked great through the Big Shot. These are my 3D Swaps for Leadership..........I got lots of them (almost 200) - I had some felt left over and thought I should use it (or lose it!). This was an interesting project to finish. I can't wait to give these out!

And here's my favorite color:

These are cut pieces ready to go through the Big Shot:
And look at all the scraps from cutting these (through the Big Shot)
This is what is left: cute flowers. I also kept the circles from the basket to use, too.
Look at all these stacked up - ready to be sewn:

Power sewing in progress:

And here they are, all turned with their flowers and brads.

The "Thank You" is not only stamped, it is "coated: with clear tape before it was punched out. Both the label and flowers are secured on the baskets using mini glue dots.

  • Stamps: Oval All
  • CS: Yo Yo Yellow
  • Ink: Brilliant Blue
  • Accys: SU Exclusive Big Shot Basket & Blooms, Silver Brads, Oval Scallop Punch, Mini Glue Dots, 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Piercer, Felt (non SU)

Thank you for stopping by today.....................HUGS!!!!
