Picnic Basket

Here is a picnic basket I made with a bit of help from the wonderfully talented Maya here is her blog and here is her fantastic basket she followed a tutorial here but altered the size.

I have woven the basket using some 12 x 12 double sided green and pink paper, I made the large flower rosettes myself on each side of the basket and used a Martha Stewart punch on the hande and around the pink edging on the sides. I have also added some pink and green ribbon around the basket too.

I am entering this project into the following challenges
Totally Papercrafts Pink and girlie
Crafty Catz Pink and green
Pixie Cottage Anything but a card
Fab n funky Whatever
Pixie dust studio Home made embellies
Dutch Dare Photo inspiration
