Easy Easter Basket




I am super excited to be joining the Kraft Journal for the next 6 months of designing with some very talented ladies.  I also am a huge kraft paper lover.  I use it on so many of my creations so this is a perfect fit for me.  Head on over to the Kraft Journal blog and check out this week's challenge.  Create an Easter or Spring creation.   The kraft products we are creating with are from the 
Kraft Outlet Store.  It has all your kraft needs and so much more. 


Esater Basket FINAL



I created this little basket just in time for Easter.  I chose the Kraft Outlet's Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  I cut a piece  into a 6 X 6 square and folded it into a basket.  Before folding I sponged all the edges with ink for more dimension.  The Easter tag was created with a Small Kraft Shipping Tag and attached with Pink Baker's Twine.  For the inside filling she crimped and then thinly cut strips of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock for some Easter "grass".  The Easter tag is one of three I purchased from Etsy HERE.
