I’ve been playing around with some of my Sale-a-Bration goodies trying to come up with Stamp Camp ideas. Although the project featured in this post is a little too advanced for a stamp camp, we will be creating something very similar to the basket I am sharing with you today….and this one will be displayed at the stamp camp to show additional ideas, accessories, and tools to the guests.
Isn’t this basket so cute? I’m going to tuck this little basket away and give it to my daughter in her Easter basket. I used Sale-a-Bration items Yummy stamp set, So Saffron & Certainly Celery Ribbon Bundle, and Delicate Dots DSP.
I’ve seen the envelope big shot die basket for some time now, but I wanted to change it up a little by creating a woven pattern to the box/basket base. For the basket, I used my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Top Note Die, and Scallop Envelope Die.
Here are a couple upclose pics of the basket base:
I wanted the appearance of cardstock being folded over the sides of the basket (sort of like a nice patterned fabric napkin in a real basket). This piece was created with the Top Note Die and I placed an Antique Jumbo Eyelet with my Crop-a-Dile tool to hold the paper in place. I threaded the Certainly Celery Ribbon through the hole and tied Hemp Twine around ribbon to secure in place.
Here is another upclose picture to show more of the basket details. I added little patterned paper flowers to each side of the sentiment main focal point created with my Boho Blossoms Punch. Added brads from Vintage Brads Assortment so they would coordinate with the eyelets on the sides of the basket. As you can see, all basket pieces were sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. I used Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery ink on the main sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with my paper snips. Adhered to basket with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I filled a 4″ x 6″ cello bag filled with whoppers robin eggs candies. Closed cello bag shut with some So Saffron ribbon. For the tag, I used Bashful Blue ink for the wording on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with my Small Oval Punch. Adhered to a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock that I punched out with my Large Oval Punch. I added a chipboard heart from On Board Loads of Letters. Punched a 1/16″ hole and attached to ribbon with Hemp Twine. I cut thin strips of Sahara Sand cardstock and ran them through my Crimper Tool. I placed these thin strips inside of the basket with the cello bag of candy.
Sale-a-Bration is half way over. Time is running out. You can find out more information on my website.
