I saw these sweet

mini baskets on and decided to make some for Easter . I just love the many scraps in my carton and made use of some very vintage paper on this project. The purple plaid paper is from HOTP and looks great combined with two different shades of purple as the basis of the basket. The pattern calls for 6x6inch squares to start so I used a 8x11 paper sheet and created the handle with the leftover scrap. I used two different edgers on the handles-Martha Stewart and a Fiskars . I really wished the companies marked the tool with it's name because I really do not remember that information. The pink striped paper is newer-2010 Pitter Patter from MM -one of my surprises found at Monday Morning (25 sheet double sided pack for 1.99). The coordinating brads hold it together and are are from Recollections.I plan to put some "grass " in the bottom with some treats for dessert .
Happy Crafting!
