Basket - Two Tags Bigz

Baskets come in all shapes and forms and this is one we made at Coffee, Cake, Craft and Chocolate Club.  The attendees made the basket from the Two Tags Bigz 115954 and took it home for decorating.  This is what each of us come up with...

Made in Wild Wasabi, I decorated my basket very simply with Daffodil Delight highlights
     119275 Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch
     127811 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Paper flower with retired brad centre
     Satin Ribbon - discontinued
The brad not only ties the handle to the basket, but looks great too!
 The basket is made simply from two tags and a gusset  - you can use any width, and cut to length.
From this aspect you can see that the tags are joined together with a gusset.
Sherenne's basket is stunning.  She used a number of retired SU products including the crimper, threads, brad, greeting and the rabbit which was embossed...  and WOW

For the instructions on how to make this please visit Dawn Griffith, there is a supply list and You Tube video on how to make these gorgeous little baskets.

Enjoy the Autumn leaves, and your crafting...

Accordian cards 1

Accordion cards are wonderful fun to decorate and make a story.  The ladies at PLR had Easter on their mind and created these beauties.

The cards are very simple to make
       Card dimension 12" x 5 3/4" this then fold down so the card will fit in a C6 envelope
       Score landscape on your score board at  1 1/8";  2 1/4";  4 1/4";  6 1/4";  9"
       Fold the card in a zig zag pattern along scores and start to decorate

I hope you enjoyed looking and that you are inspired to make a story on an accordion card.
Thanks for stopping by
