Yep, you read that right......I am working on Christmas Projects. Its kinda depressing how fast this year has gone by, isn't it? Well the project I have to share with you today was easy to make because the die template does all the work! Here is a basket I made using the Hexagon Petal Grand Template from Spellbinders.
To make this basket, I used 1 sheet of 12 x 12" Sunset Rose Dotted Swiss cardstock. I cut the sheet to 8 x 12" and cut/embossed using the Hexagon Petal Grand Die. Then using the left over piece, I cut six 1 x 2" pieces to hold the petals together and a handle that measures 1" x 12.
Here is what my pieces looked like before I started.
Now all you have to do is add your handle and decorate the basket with your Poinsettia flowers! Like I said this was a pretty simple project because I let my Spellbinders die templates do all the work! Here are a few more close-ups!
Here is the flower I put on the top of the handle.
