Picnic Basket

Morning all
I thought I would post this before I go into the garden to start work out there
Today's project is a picnic basket




I saw this on Pintrest and thought I would have a go at making one
It took forever to do but was worth it in the end
It can be used for Easter eggs, Jewelry box or for putting chocolates in for someone special.

Baby keepsake

Morning
What a beautiful day it is, the sun is shining and it is lovely and warm.
Today I decided to show you a pram I made last year for my niece


I found the template for this on Pintrest but it had no measurements on it
so I had to make it up as I went along


I had to make a presentation box for it as it finished it off really nice
I have used "spellbinders" dies for the wheels a "Martha Stewart"
punch for the corner decorative parts and "spellbinders die for the tag

Thank you for looking in and for any comments you are kind enough to leave

Bunny baskets

Afternoon
Just a bit of fun today, I have made loads of 
Easter Bunny baskets for my craft fair which is a week on sunday


They are very easy to make but very fiddly.
All you need is card, "sizzix" heart die, "spellbinders" ovals dies
Wiggly eyes and ribbon.


Put these 2 on so you can see a close up, I still have more of these to make
oh joy!

As always thank you for looking in and any comments you leave 
are greatly appreciated xx Janis xx
