Easter Basket for TMITA and JUGS

At There's Magic in the Air, Sue Welsh brought us this week's fun challenge to use the  image "Eggs-traordinary Find" and incorporate it with a paper or altered Easter Basket. Click here to see the image.

At Just Us Girls it was time for another Template Challenge! All you have to do to play along, is to use ANY template of your choice! I chose a rounded basket template I found on Mel Stampz.

I began by cutting out the basket using Mel's template from a patterned paper. I scored and folded the basket, punched holes at the corners and tied with yellow ribbon. I added sheer ribbon to the curved edges on top. I cut the handle from striped paper and punched with a scallop border. I lined the underneath part of handle with same striped paper.

I printed the bunny digital image and cut with a circle nestie. I colored the image and also paper pieced (scraps from basket) the egg to which I added a ribbon and bow. Matted the image on a pink round mat and then a scalloped yellow mat both cut with nesties. Attached the circles to the front of basket with dimensionals. Just for fun I attached buttons to the bottom for legs.
Finished with some grass and candy inside.
