Heart Basket Tutorial

Hello, stampers! Happy Friday! Here is a tutorial for the heart basket.

You'll need two pieces of cardstock of the Petal Cone Die. Here, I used Crumb Cake cs.

Use a ruler and pencil and mark 2" up for the two outside lines and 1-7/8" for the middle line. I used a pen so you can see it. Next, mark 1" up from bottom for all the lines. Draw a line across the bottom markings if it helps you to cut straight. Do this step to both cardstock pieces.

Score the top markings. The shaded area is where you'll cut it off.

After the shaded area is cut off cut the middle line up to the marking.

Place the two die pieces one at a time and emboss with the emboss folder of your choice. I used Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

Add sticky strips at the bottom flaps and to the two side panels as shown above. Stick the sides together first. The flap you can't see the sticky strip in the photo will be the last flap you stick the bottom together. Now you are done with the basket.

I sponge mine before decorating.

Decorate as desire. I borrow the treats from the other basket.

Now is your turn to make one. I would like to post your creation. Send me the picture of your basket and I'll post it on here for everyone to see.

Thank you for stopping by! If you have any questions about the tutorial just leave me a comment and I'll answer you with my best knowledge.

Happy Stamping!
