I couldn't be more excited about this new Beyond Baskets 2 ! It's one I'll keep on my desk, long after this holiday season, for all occasions! You can see all the coordinating basket sets here, but today's project uses just this one.
The largest stamp in this set, the tied sack, measures approximately 1 7/8" x 3 3/4". I use a four inch round finger grip block for this and the other containers.
Since I've aready shown alot of cards ideas for the different new containers, and I know you'll see many more beautful cards today on our hop, instead I'm going to show you how to make simple, inexpensive but really unique and festive treatholder for everyone on your list! You'll love playing Secret Santa with these!
Doesn't that look just like a really tiny bag? (or just some really BIG old goodies?) Perfect for gift cards, candy, crafty trinkets and more.
Here is a short video showing you tips for stamping and combining these new images and how to make this easy treat holder, perfect for friends, teachers, your sweetie, and little ones! (Unfortunately, I think I must have bumped the camera just before I started, because this one is a little blurry! I apologize, but I also have step out pics for you below if you have trouble following!)Supplies used: Gina K Beyond Baskets 2, Pure Luxury Red Hot and White cardstock, Black Onyx ink, Memento Love Letter marker, Sakura Gold glitter pen, red bakers twine, scissors, Scor-Buddy, Scor-Tape, 1/16 inch circle punch, glue dot.
Score at 1" and 2".
Turn and score 1/2" from each side (1/2" and 3 1/2" marks)
Fold all score lines.
Turn over and add Scor-tape to end tabs.
Pull together sides and pinch to close.
Just add the cut bags to either side! (refer to photo below for where i added the shadows with the marker) I used this Studio file to cut out multiple bags before I did my stamping. I hope you enjoyed this project!
I hope you enjoyed today's project! I *know* you will love this set! Can't wait to see what terrific ideas you have for it and all the fun things you'll put "inside" these new images. Scroll down for more basket posts if you missed my samples and tip sheet for the set this past week.
Next we have Christmas Joy from Rupa Shevde. The one tree is stamped in Fresh Asparagus, then stamped off to make the lighter one, and stamped finally in Prickly Pear. Greeting is stamped in Black Onyx.
To add more color to these trees, I used my Big Bite to punch out some of the circles in the design that another colored cardstock can show through the holes for a two stamped look. I also added adhesive rhinestones for sparkle and texture.
Now, please enjoy hopping with the rest of the team, and don't forget to leave comments! Hope you've enjoyed out September hops!
