Pack a Picnic basket

Hi girls,

No stamped images this time but I do have something to show you which is a little basket I made for friends of ours who very recently returned from a three year stay in Australia. We are very glad they are back even though they would have loved to stay longer. Just to make them feel a bit more at home the basket contains some Dutch sweets and a gift card for a garden centre because I figured that after three years of being away their garden could use some new plants and stuff.

Anyway here is the basket I created using Lauren Meader's Pack a Picnic template for Papertrey Ink, these templates are perfect by the way. You cut your cardstock to a printable size (A4 worked fine for me) you make sure you print the templates without cropping it (printen zonder te verkleinen dus voor de Nederlandse meiden) and you cut and score it and put it together. I'll definitely use this template again, the basket comes in two sizes when you buy the template and this is the biggest.

I'm sorry if the pictures aren't that good. I didn't have a lot of time to take them. Papers are old ones by Bo Bunny I think and cardstock. The white ribbon and the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts (I've done some serious shopping there can you tell :S). The pink dotted ribbon I bought from my friend Helma at Stamping Corner, she has these in a lot of amazing colors and I love them. I did the bows with the bow easy (which she also sells), I love this little tool but I would totally recomment using Suzanne J. Dean's fantastic tutorial on it on YouTube if you use it for the first time, it's fantastic as are all of here tutorials by the way.
Well that's it for me for now. Hope you like the basket!
