I was so excited to get the Berry Basket Die & to finally have a chance to play with it.  Using the Stampin' Success Magazine from Stampin' Up!, I created the basket showcased in the magazine.

These are nice & sturdy because they were created with Coaster Board.  Cover the Coaster Board with a thin layer of Crystal Effects.  I used a sponge brush to move the Crystal effects around.  Peel the backing off the Washi Sheet of your choice and carefully pale it on the wet Coaster Board.  

Repeat with another piece of Coaster BoardWashi Sheet.

Fold the basket with the Washi Sheet on the inside of the basket.  The top edge piece was cut with the initial trip through the Big Shot.  All you have to do is decide if the fancy side or the neutral side will face out.  I did one of each so you can see the difference.  I also used the scalloped edge on one basket & the straight edge on the other basket.

To decorate the front, I slipped 1/2 of a Tea Lace paper Doilie under the front strip prior to stapling the strip in place.   

A strip of card stock  is cut 3/8" wide & just about 1/2" shorter than the width of the basket.  Banner cut the ends & attach – I used Fast Fuse.

Stamp the butterfly from Butterfly Basics in the same color as your Washi Sheet.  Cut out with the Butterfly Framelit.  Tie a bow with the Whisper White Blooms Cotton twine and attach with a Glue Dot.

The basket is quick and easy to put together.  This video from Stampn' Up! will give you the details.
