Pumpkin Basket!

Hello! How are you? It is cold and rainy here today...a perfect day for holing up and crafting the hours away! Unfortunately my day was full of doctor's visits and errand running. I do have something to share with you though! I saw this on Becky's Robert's blog and thought it was the most adorable thing ever!! I couldn't wait to make one and was so excited with how it came out! You can find the original here. She is wonderfully talented! I think this is so cute because it is so tiny! I just love little bitty things! This is only big enough to hold a couple of mini candy bars or a couple of kisses! I thought these would make the cutest little Thanksgiving table place decorations! Maybe add a name to each or add a note expressing why I was thankful for each person! Lots of ideas! :) This was made using SU!s Wide Oval punch. I sponged the edges of each one and layered them. I added a couple of stamped leaves, a stem made from half of the word window punch and curled a thin strip of green. Did I mention how crazy about these I am! I plan to make oodles of them! :) Here it is:

Sorry about the stinky lighting! I took this in the rain today! Ok, I am off to do the dishes and figure out dinner! Thanks for stopping by! Will be back soonest!

Great project AnnMarie! You've been busy this month girl :)
Now, I've gotta get me a score pal so I can get some of these done.

I too am crazy about these....they are totally cute and I love your idea of using them as place settings and then writing the name and something you are thankful about in that person! Cute!!!
