It's time for another Papertrey Ink (PTI) blog hop. Here are the details for this month from the PTI website...
February Blog Hop
Easter and other spring celebrations will be here before you know it! And besides, there's nothing better to beat the winter doldrums than to turn our minds towards those first spring flowers bursting through the ground and the birds returning with their sweet songs. Your challenge this month is to put a little "spring" into your step, by incorporating the flowers, familiar sights and colors of spring into a project. Think birds nests containing newly laid eggs, flowers in pretty pastels, new green leaves, baby chicks and anything else that speaks to your creative soul! We look forward to seeing all of your interpretations of this fun challenge!
I didn't have much time to play...honestly, I got my new stamps yesterday and I totally forgot about the blog hot until this morning (at least I didn't miss it!). I had to work all morning, was home for only 1 1/2 hours, then back out to pick up Ansley from school and take the kids straight to Gymnastics. Wednesdays are our busiest day of the week. So in the short time I was home this afternoon, I threw this together.
I have been thinking about what to do for my stamp club next month (to make sure I already have the supplies or need to place an order). And with Easter around the corner, I wanted to make a basket. So this project helped me to spend a few minutes to make it work.
I need to finalize the dimensions then I plan on making a tutorial.
In the mean time here is my basket...

I created the sides using Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White CS. It's so thick; perfect for a box. In fact, any time I make a white card, I use PTI white because of the thickness.
I stamped the new Friends 'Til the End flowers randomly over a piece of CS. Then I ran it through my cuttlebug with the SU Top Note die. I messed around to create the smaller side and bottom panels and attached it with Sticky Strip/Red Line Tape.
Here is a view of the side...
And here is another view...
I punched some holes with my Crop-a-Dile, added some SU Pewter Jumbo Brads, and some PTI Pure Poppy Polka Dot Satin Ribbon for handles.
I'm really happy with how it turned out since I had less than an hour to figure it out, make it, and take pictures!!
Make sure you check back within the next few days for a tutorial. I'm sorry I don't have it ready right now.
Thanks for stopping by!
