My Big Fat Wedding Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to the My Big Fat Wedding Blog Hop!


Welcome to My Big Fat Wedding Blog Hop.

If not, please go and start from the beginning at http://wwwpaperkraftsunlimiteddesings.blogspot.com
Blog Hop Giveaway is............ $10.00 Gift Card fom Ginger Snaps Scraps.




Here is what I came up with: Here is a little "flower girl" basket I made without even using my Cricut Expression. As much as I love my Expression, sometimes I just want to use some paper and make something quick! Well, it doesn't get any quicker than this!!!






I started out with a 12 x 12 piece of card stock and cut it down to 9 x 9. You will also need a one inch strip of contrasting paper for the handle.Score at three and six inches ----- but only score three inches down. Turn the paper 180 degrees and repeat.
Cut the score line. You are going to have what looks like flaps. Fold the flaps with a bone folder for a more crisp fold.
Using an ATG adhesive or a double sided tape, take two ends and bring them to one another with the third flap in the middle. The middle flap with fold up on the inside of the two flaps. Secure the end and then do the other side. Take the one inch strip and adhere it to the inside of the "basket". You can then embellish it. I used some pink ribbon and some flowers that I had in my stash. This little basket was sooo easy to make. It took less than 30 minutes from beginning to end!


The patterned paper came from Close to My Heart from the Sweetheart paper pack. If you want to purchase that paper or any of the other paper from CTMH, you can purchase it >>>>>HERE<<<<<
