Tutorial Sweet Spring Party Baskets

I have a Lot Of Pink and Bunny Love
Going On In My Studio This Week!

Here are the supplies I use
I start out with a Vintage Plastic Favor Basket
I do have a large Collection of these
in Various Colors

An a good amount of them are Missing their Handles
So I use some of My Chenille Pipe Cleaners
To Make a Basket Handle
I take them and twist them together
and Then add a couple of Beads for a Vintage Flair!

I make a Bow using Pink Seam binding
I love working with it such a great vintage look
And then a sprig of Millinery

I Fill The Basket with a Colored Paper Filler
And add Some Easter Goodies
I used a Colored Egg and A Cup Cake Pick

And There you go a Darling Spring Basket
I Still Have some of My Valentine Kits In my Shop
and I will be Offering these Spring Baskets Soon
Hope You Enjoyed This Little Tutorial
E-mail Me if you have any questions.

I Just Love the way these turned out, can't way to make more.
My Next Post will be a Valentine Give away, so stop back in
a couple days. Enjoy your Day. And make time to Create!
We all deserve it!!

You're so good to be thinking ahead to Easter ... although I confess I do have thoughts of Christmas 2010 things to make from time to time! Yikes.
