Technique Tuesday – Treat Basket

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!! You know what that means…..I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you! This week it is the adorable little basket! You can use it for candy, treats, homemade goodies, or any type of gift!!! It is always fairly quick and simple too!

Treat Basket Tutorial, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Supplied Needed: Cardstock, Scissors, Scoring Tool (Stampin’ TrimmerSimply Scored Tool, or Bone Folder), Sticky Strip, Hole Punch, Brads, decorations/embellishments, and TREATS!

Using an 8” x 8” piece of cardstock, you will score at 2”, 4”, and 6” on both sides of the square. This will give you 2” squares all over. Cut up 2” to the first score line on all sides. This will make the corners fall off. Apply Sticky Strip to one of the squares on all four sides. Fold the sides together to make a point (overlapping 2 squares together). For the handle, cut a ½” x 8” piece of cardstock and attach with brads. Decorate as you wish! I used the Scallop Circle Punch on all four sides. Then I stamped the butterfly from Papillion Potpourri and punched it out with my Elegant Butterfly Punch. Of course I attached the butterfly with Stampin Dimensionals to add some texture and allow for bending the wings forward!!! Super cute and it would look great as treats for a Bridal Shower, Baby Shower, or any other events with Treat Bags. You could always put the name of the guest on one of the sides and it could double as a place card!!! Here is a video for you to watch how this was created!!!

Happy Stampin’
