Basket Full of Treats

I can see so many fun things to do with this project - use it for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentines and what about the Spring May Basket!  Just change the colors, the stamp set and you have a cute little basket treat for any occasion or holiday.

Start with a 5 x 5 piece of cardstock, score on each side at 1 1/2 inches.

2_copy

Cut from the top edge on the vertical score marks just to the horizontal mark, repeat on the bottom.  Then fold up the sides and adhere to make a small basket.

Add a handle 1/2" x 5"

4_copy

Decorate your Pearson mints.  These are done by punching two pieces of Almost Amethyst® Cardstock with the scallop punch and adhering one to the bottom and one to the top of the mint with glue dots.  Then 1 3/8 in circle punch in Certainly  Celery®, stamp Circle of Friendship© "Holiday Hello" on Whisper White® Card stock and then punch with the 1 1/4 circle punch.  Stamp the image again on Certainly Celery® and punch the love-peace-joy with the 1/2 circle punch and adhere with a dimensional.

DEFINITELY DIVA STAMPERS CHRISTMAS PARTY

Today was my Direct Recruits Christmas Party --- There are many advantages to being part of my Stampin'Up! team and this is one of them.  I love planning and getting ready for this special event and hopefully they will know how much I value their friendship and hard work throughout the year.  The day started out with a Breach followed by the always exciting hand stamped gift exchange and of course stamping!  I thought it would be fun to share all our hand stamped gifts and projects. So sit back and get ready to browse through some inspiring ideas!

A Definitely Diva Stampers Day is not complete without stamping.   Their M&T was the project below.  This project was inspired by Carbria Turnbow.
