Eileen Hull: Flower Basket

Hi everyone! I am  so excited to share my first project from CHA/Creativation using Eileen Hull’s newest Heartfelt Collection! This little flower basket is created with the new Basket Diecut, Mat Board and the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.

After all the pieces to the basket was cut out and embossed I spritzed all the pieces (both sides) with Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist and once dry I splattered with Gold Glimmer Mist. I then put it together according to the direction of the packaging.

I used a scrap of white cardstock and I cut out and painted three of the flowers and a leaf from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts. Once dry I shaped, glued together and added a Dew Drop to the center of the flower.  

I adhered the flower between the basket handles with a couple of loops of thread and added lace to the top edges of the basket to finish it off. Be sure to hop over to Eileen’s BLOG to see what the other Inspiration Team members have been up to and as always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Garden Bunny Basket

Hi everyone! First off I would like to welcome you to the Robin’s Nest Garden Blog Hop! Second off please make sure to stop by each of the blogs and leave a comment, follow each blog and follow our FB page.  We are giving away a prize on each blog.  It is a $15 butterfly kit full of Robin’s Nest butterfly products, perfect for the garden. 🙂
Now I would like to share a quick project that is originally something that you would use to start plants in your garden with. When I went to Lowes I found two sizes of peat pots but I went with the larger size I figured it was the prefect size to alter and create an adorable basket.

I had very little Caribbean Blue acrylic paint leftover from another project so I mixed that paint with white and painted the peat pot. I let dry and then I used Antique Mod Podge to seal it.
I punched holes on either side of the pot and I run an iridescent pipe cleaner through each hole to make the handle. I adhered half of a doily and ric rac around the top of the pot. I created a banner and a rosette and glued on top of the doily. Next I fussy cut from the Vintage Easter Greetings  sheet a bunny. I punched a circle from the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock and adhered on top of the banner and rosette.

I cut four flowers from the Pink Glitter Cardstock using the Flower #3 die and I used green scraps of cardstock to cut the leaves out. I used a stylus to give the flower petals and leaves shape. Then I adhered together and added buttons, sequins and a Pearl Dew Drop (Crimson Mini Dew Drops). I glued it to the side of the handle.


That’s a pretty easy project, huh??? Now all I have to do is add some more goodies. 🙂
