I'm Back With a Cute Project!

I am so sorry that I haven't posted in so long! We have been crazy busy getting ready for our mission's trip to Mexico and my family coming to visit! My family will be arriving tomorrow afternoon sometime and I am extremely excited! I haven't seen them since Christmas so it will be nice to spend some time with them. The sad part is that we will only get 2 days with them before we have to leave for Mexico. On a good note, my new SU! order should be here tomorrow! Anyway, since my family is coming, I decided to make them little welcoming/Easter gifts! I am trying to get my mom into stamping and I figure what better way than to show her some cool projects you can make! So, without further ado, here is what I made!

Let me tell you, these baskets were incredibly easy to make! I think I will try and create a tutorial on them so that you can make one yourself but that may take a few days. You will have to have some patience with me. For the time being I will just tell you what I did. First I took a piece of 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 and scored each side at 2 3/4 and 5 1/5. I then cut two opposite sides to the first score line. After that I took my corner rounder and rounded off the corners of the outside squares. Once I had stamped and done all of my folding I brought in the flaps and paper pierced a hole where I wanted the brads to go. I then created a handle and there you have it! I hope all of this makes sense. It probably doesn't but I guess you will have to wait until I get the tutorial done. Sorry about that! Well, I am not sure how much posting I will be able to do within the next week and a half! I will be home from Mexico on the 29th! If I don't post before then, Happy Easter everyone!

Wow Steph, how cute are those?! Your family is going to love them. I bet your mom would be great at stamping, but if she's anything like my Mom, she's just afraid she'll "mess it up"..hehe. Anyways, I hope you have a great time in Mexico! Love ya - Happy Easter!
