Beaster Basket

(Beaster Basket--what my now twelve year old called Easter Baskets when she was little..sniff!!!)

Today is another busy day. I am working on some publication write ups and my daughter has another softball game tonight. (BTW---we lost on the weekend but the girls did GREAT!)

So I just wanted to pop in and show you this little bunny basket I created with the newest flopsey-Flopsey's Flowers from My Favorite Things:

It was super simple to create the basket part. I used a tutorial I saw somewhere (SCS maybe?) and just made the dimensions smaller. I will be sure to post a link when I locate it!

I colored the flopsey with Copic markers and cut him out. I paper pieced the flowers and added little black rhinestones to the centers before attaching him to the basket. It is perfect for presenting a gift card or a little treat for Easter!

Materials used: Stamps- Flopsey (My Favorite Things); designer paper Droopy Vines(GCD Studios); white cardstock -pure luxury (Gina K designs); Copic markers; adhesive rhinestones (Mark Richards); dimensionals (SU!); Threading water punch (Fiskars).

Thanks for all your sweet comments and emails on Mr Frog! He still makes me laugh!

Have a wonderful day!

Such a sweet basket, Cammie!! My youngest is the only one who really did and still does have a lot of cute mispronunciations. I love each and every one, and am always a little sad when he finally starts saying the "correct" thing!! I love Beaster Basket!! Too cute!

Cammie,
That basket of your is adorable!!!

We are reminiscing often about our oldest son's creative pronunciations of things, as he's a senior this year we find ourselves taking often about him as a wee one.. like hospital being hostapeel and theatre being feteaer and boulevard being branolabard. Have not a clue how that one came about.. but ROTFL about beaster baskets!

Sweet basket Cammie! I love this new Flopsey!! Well, since you brought it up, my daughter's 3rd Grade teacher has a note she has kept for the past 20 years that my daughter printed for her one day. "You are the beast teacher ever" I laughed when I heard that one!!

Great way to use this image. I just won a MFT gift certificate and I think that this is on my list. Super job. I love remembering those "little" days. They go so fast.
