Perfect Setting Basket

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today's projects is a little basket I made using the Perfect Setting Bigs Die that was one of the Deals of the Week promotion last month. It is such a cute little basket!

I wasn't sure what to do with this die when I got it. I hardly make cupcakes so using this die doesn't work for me. I wanted something more practical than just for cupcakes so I made a base to go inside to make it into a basket. I just use whatever paper that was in front of me. Not a traditional Christmas colour as you can see. I love snowflakes so that was what I stamp this basket with.

To make the base of the basket I used the Coluzzle Cutting template that is retired. You can use the Circle Plus Cutter if you have one. I don't so I'm not sure what size of circle to use. I used the fifth circle from the middle. I then trace the basket bottom so I would know where to cut the notches to form the flaps. Then, I put adhesive around the inside the bottom of the basket and attached the base. The handle was the long straight piece that comes in the die.

Here is a picture of the basket without treats in it. Hope you like this little basket!

Thank you for stopping by! I'm making these baskets for my two daughter's birthday this weekend and I'll show you when I'm done.

Happy Stamping!
