I made this cute little treat basket as a customer thank you for anyone who ordered in September. I ended up making about 16 of them. The basket is really easy to make and I followed this tutorial on Dawn Olchefske's blog.
I wanted to make mine with a fall theme and decided to do a "pumpkin patch". First I cut out my 2 tags with the Two Tags Die and my Big Shot using Old Olive cardstock. To make the vines I stamped the large swirl stamp from Baroque Motifs with Old Olive ink. I made the pumpkin by punching out 3 large ovals, sponging the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink and then stacking them up and adding a little stem. This one is my prototype but for the final project I made the stems out of Garden Green since in this one the stem just blended into the background when I used Old Olive.
I made the name banner out of scrap Very Vanilla (you know me and my scraps!) and sponged the edges with Old Olive. I used my Early Espresso marker to hand write the names (hopefully my customers could tell it was their name as I have horrible handwriting!). I adhered the banner with dimensionals. For my customer baskets I used Old Olive brads to attach the handle since I didn't have enough of the metallic ones for 16 baskets. I tied a few pieces of hemp twine around the handle to give it some more personality.
And finally I filled the baskets with 3 Ghirardelli chocolate squares. Yummy!
Thanks for looking! Happy Stamping!
