A tisket, a tasket...a fun little basket! : )

Good morning! :) It is a beautiful almost Fall day here! There is a slight crisp n the air this morning! I love that!

I have a fun little basket to share with you today! These are perfect for a last minute throw together gift! Score it, stamp it and fold it all up and then fill it full of chocolate and you are all set! You can make these from any size square. 8x8 is a cute size for a child or maybe a table decoration or party favor! This one is made from a 12x12 and will hold LOTS of chocolate (winky wink!!)! Score a tic tac toe pattern evenly on your square (for a 12x12 score at 4" in and then 8" flip and repeat). Then score each corner square diagonally from the outer corner into the center stopping at the center square. This will allow you to fold each outer corner in at the center! That is the basic design! Stamp, matte and embellish as you wish! These also make great teacher or coach gifts! They can be filled with tissues, cough drops, chap stick, word search puzzles etc also for a get well gift! :) The possibilities are endless! I know these directions are clear as mud so if you would like me to try to explain them further feel free to e mail and I will do my best!

Here is a side view and top view of my basket:

I have oodles to do today, so I am off! Hope that you have a wonderful day! I will be back soonest!
