Terrifically Thrilling Thursday

HI, hoping your having a Terrifically Thrilling Thursday. I know I am excited to share with you this week. I have been playing around with punch #603 small flower. Why just use it alone when you can expand on it. So here is what I came up with.

Why not make clusters of layered flowers to form a medium size flower. I used a background disc to mount the double layered two coloured flowers punched with #603. I even glimmer misted one to see what it looked like.

So after experimenting I made a Easter basket and finished it off with a cluster of flowers on the handle.

The base for the basket started with the Kreaxions star and was punched with #913 and insert "C". It makes a doily looking base to hold the basket frame.

Starting with a 6" long strip about 5" wide I border punched with Kreaxions #904.

Then I scored the other side about 3/8 ". You then slit it from the edge to the score line so you can roll the piece into a cylinder and glue it together. To secure it better I made 2 - 1 3/4" circles with the circle cutter to glue to the bottom of the cylinder and inside the cylinder.

I then cut a strip for a handle. I secured it to the basket with brads on the sides. On one side I added the floral cluster I made and on the other side I added a tag using a ribbon and tied it on.
Here is my finished project from a different angle. It's all ready for that easter creme egg for the grandkids.... now I just need to make 3 more just the same only different colours.

Sure had fun sharing with you today.. hope to see you again next week.....hugs Bev
