Urban prairie basket

I love these gorgeous spring-y colors in this paper pack, they are really inspiring me to create. This cute little basket is actually made from my Cricut .cut file version of the SU! scalloped envelope die. I designed this copy-cat version originally for the heart shaped couple card, here.
This is the side view, showing the handle better. My .cut file includes the decorative layers for all four sides too. The handle was manually border punched from the scrap that was left from the piece of 8.5 x 11 cardstock I cut the basket from originally.
Here is my first version of this basket. All loaded up for giving to a friend who's recovering from an illness.

I forgot to photograph it before I left for a visit. So these photos are taken in the car on an overcast California afternoon. But I liked the project so much I decided to come home and make another.

I am happy to share my .cut file. If you would like it, please leave me a comment on this post, including your email address and I will send it out to you.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
