I made this paper basket some time ago (notice the retired In Color Purely Pomegranate) and recently spruced it up with some tropical colors for a wedding shower. I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit and the Beautiful Butterflies die, along with the Little Leaves sizzlet for the Big Shot, and a doubled Five Petal Flower punch as well. The ribbon is Certainly Celery satin from the Mini Catalog. I want that ribbon in every color!
I haven't woven a paper basket since I was a little kid and actually it didn't take very long and was lots of fun! It's also quite sturdy. This one is made from one-inch strips so it's about six inches by four inches on the footprint and about three inches high.
A little more work than the usual gift bag, but so adorable! And perfect for spring, Mother's Day, or Easter.
