Basket on a Budget - Variation One

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Hope y'all had a great weekend! (Ooh look I'm talking Texan now -- haha, it was a fun trip by the way!)

In my ongoing quest to create some inexpensive Easter Basket alternatives, I spent some time tooling around with the "Basket on a Budget" template:

I used a smaller rectangle this time, of cardstock, and scalloped the long edges of the rectangle. I also added a different color liner and some 3D paper flowers. I guess it looks a little more Springy rather than Easter, huh?

The nice thing about this project is that a change in colors or embellishments would completely change the look of the basket.

More Easter Basket ideas coming soon. Enjoy!

So cute! To me Easter and Spring are so intertwined that I don't think this is or cold be "too springy" at all.

Glad that you are back!!! I love the 3D paper flower, it really spice up the basket!
