My DT project for Pennys Anything but a card challenge

Here is a cute little woven basket I have made for our Anything but a card challenge over at Pennys this fortnight, following a fantastic tutorial HERE. It took me far longer than I expected but I am happy with the result. It measures 4 x 4 x 4 inches and I have put some yummy shortbread in it for a little pressie. I have added 4 photos here so you can see it from all 4 sides.

I love the cute little cook image I got to play with this week which is by The Digi Garden one of our sponsors this week.

We are also sponsored by Sassy Cheryls Digis

I have coloured it using the following Copic Pens, E000, E35, E43, G000, G12, BV0000, BV11.

The 12 x 12 paper I have used is from a double sided 12 x 12 scrap pad to go by K & Company called Verbena. I have added a little tag which says "Shortbread just for you" on it and I have tied it on with some lilac coloured twine round the handle and in a bow.

The handle can be moved backwards and frontwards as it is attached with 2 purple large brads.

I know a lot of crafters struggle for ideas for Anything but a card challenges but there are some good tutorials in blogland so I hope we have some fantastic entries, don't forget we are sponsored by The digi garden and by Sassy Cheryls Digi's so hop on over and join in our Anything Goes challenge HERE
