Weaving Experiment

I’ve always loved baskets and, if I had an endless money supply, would have more Longaberger baskets in my house than I already do! They are so fun to fill up with things that, by themselves, look like clutter! You know, all those pens and pencils stuffed in the kitchen drawer? With a little basket, I can actually display them on my kitchen counter! LOL! This time of year, though, baskets are more fun to fill with goodies and surprises to give away. I decided to attempt making a basket out of cardstock with the guidance of one of Splitcoast Stampers’ online tutorials. I’ll admit, it was rather frustrating at first, but I actually think I’ll be trying another one in the near future! This one turned out decent, but I think with this particular project, practice is going to be the key! How fun!

Stamps: ghost from Eat Cake Graphics (available at Paper Garden Projects), sentiment from C.C. Designs
Cardstock: SU Pumpkin Pie (textured) and Basic Black cardstocks
Ink: Memento London Fog, SU Whisper White
Accents: American Crafts ribbon, SU ticket punch, SU vintage brads, glue stick, SU sticky strip
Extras: lots of patience! 🙂

    Oh! this is cute. I love your basket (although I'm not sure I could do it).
