Thank you all so much for all of the lovely comments on my Mini Easter basket from yesterday - I have prepared a template which I will be uploading to SCS. I am putting a link in the sidebar in the templates section which will take you straight to the download - It's the only way I know how to do it. Hope it works for you. (Be real helpful if someone could leave a comment to tell me it's working!! Lol - cheers!)
There are a couple of things you should know before you use the template.
- There are two pages in the template. The basket and liner templates are on different pages - two each to the page. I supposed most folks would like the liner to be a different colour to the basket so it seemed pointless to put both basket and liner on the same page.
- There are lots of helpful hints on the templates themselves - save yourself some cardstock by opening the pdf and READING the template pages BEFORE you print!!
I would LOVE to see some baskets that you have made - come back and leave a link in the comments to this post if you like.
Above - the basket exterior printed out, cut out, stamped on the non printed side and assembled.
Above - the basket liner printed out, cut out and the centre of each exterior edge marked in pencil.
Above - use the centre mark to start off the scallop in the centre and work out towards each edge, I dislike unsymmetrical scalloping (Nerd Alert, as my best pal would put it...)
Above - folding the liner - Note the spots are stamped on the other side. Note the two pieces of double sided adhesive.
The handle is scored a half inch in from each edge as per the instructions on the template. (I also stamped mine) tuck the ends under the basket before sticking the wee scalloped base on.
Now, embellish at will!! And show me!!
Hope it tickles!!
