I designed this basket last year for one of my stamp clubs. I wanted to do something "Eastery", but I quickly realized I have no Easter stamp sets. So I improvised. I thought, "Easter signifies new life. Butterflies make me think of new life". It's a bit of a stretch, but it came out really cute.
I brought the basket back out yesterday to show the ladies in my newest stamp club. (That's right! I'm up to three clubs! Woohoo!) Of course, it had been a year since I last made this box. My brain was a little fuzzy on the details. Instead of a 6" square, I started out with a 9" square. So yesterday's basket came out a little bigger than the original. The bigger the basket, the more chocolate you can stuff in it. Am I right? :)
I am hoping to get a chance to post this later as a tutorial with more details and more pictures. For those of you who are in my stamp clubs, you know what to do from here. Happy Scrapping!
