Thank you basket and some walls!

Hello!!  Wow-wee-wow-wow!!  This day almost got away from from me!!   I had a great class tonight and got to visit with some really good  folks!  We made a fun banner that I will share with you soon, but I did want to stop by and share the little thank you baskets that I made for everyone.

This is one of my favorite little baskets to make!These are made from a 5" x  5"  piece of card stock and the handle is a simple strip glued in place. The pretty flower on front is from Flower Shop and punched with the coordinating Pansy punch.

To make one you just score your 5 x 5 square at 1.5" on all four sides.  Cut into the score marks on two sides and then do the same on the opposite side.  Fold on all score lines and then assemble and adhere sides to make basket shape.  Add a small strip by either gluing of with brads!  Easy peasy! :)

  I filled each one with flavored tootsie rolls!  I wanted each of my guests to feel welcome! :)

I also thought I would share a couple photos of our house progress with you!  We have been busy, busy, busy!!  See:

Walls!!!  We have walls!!  I am so excited!  We have been fighting with the rain for the last week or so! It is happening though!  My hubby is the brilliant mastermind behind all of this!!  The whole family has pitched in to make this happen though!  

I hope you have a wonderful night!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
