Berry Happy, Good Friday!


Crazy blog title, I know, but I am just tickled at how fun these Berry Baskets are to make!  And it's the good kind of addiction after all!  I find myself just wanting to slice open a new package of DSP or cardstock and keep on making them!  I have actually used up my open package of Best Year Ever SAB designer series paper!  I have a few more to share with you too!!

With this one I used the 12x12 Kraft Cardstock, it's a true Kraft color and a different weight than our regular color card stock, a bit heavier and pretty similar to the Under the Tree specialty dsp but this package is not designer printed.
I also, as you can see, decided to leave the handle off this one!  But did you notice the double layer or trim?  Go ahead, take a closer look!  Yep I adhered the basket together with the Kraft scallop pieces and then added the dsp straight edge pieces (handle) on top of that!  I wanted it a little sturdier so that I could add the Calypso Coral Pom Pom trim around it!

And while you are at it, check out that Spiral Flower - how'd I get it to look so full?  I cut TWO pieces and mid-way split one of them in half!  I started in the center by using the half piece with the small scallops, wound it up and then with a dab of hot glue (because it was out and ready) tacked on the 2nd full piece and continued to wind it up, eventually needing to tack on the other half piece with the large scallops.  And yes, it is hot glued to the Basket, this puppy isn't coming off!  I also decided to add the Pom Pom trim with hot glue, little bitty dots of glue under the pom poms holds it tight and keeps it in shape!

Hope you enjoy today's project!  More to come, so come on back to see me!

I would like to wish you a peaceful and calm day of reflection today on Good Friday as we head into our Easter Weekend.  Blessings to you all, I hope you have an amazing weekend!
