Tiskets and Taskets

Hey there, Peeps!

Ok....let me just start by telling you that this project wouldn't leave me alone!  No kidding!  I've had this one in my head for about a week and I finally gave in and put it all together....and I'm SO glad I did.  It just makes me happy.  :-)  I love Gerber Daisies and they seemed like the perfect addition to this project.   I'm so excited to share it with you!

So....I've seen this basket design several places and I just fell in love with it.  It's a different design than lots of the ones I've seen.  I love the shape of it and just the way it's "layered".  Here's a photo of the completed basket with the items I made to put in it.  I'll show you those separately too.  \
Here you go...


Ok...I know you can't really see the basket design itself from this photo.  Here are the other parts and pieces....


Here's the basket empty without the goodies inside.  I made my version of a Gerber Daisy from Melon Mambo and Basic Black Card Stock using the Flower, Daisies #2 die for the Big Shot.  I added a Basic Black Button for the flower center.  I layered it on a bow made from the Black/White Striped Grossgrain Ribbon  I punched leaves from both the Blossom Builder Punch and the Bird Builder Punch.  The basket is made from Naturals Ivory Card Stock and I shredded a bit of the same for the basket filler.


This is a pack of Ice Breaker Sours candy that I decorated to coordinate with the basket.  Here's what the candy looks like before the decorations...


Then I added a little cello bag filled with Hershey's Kisses and a "Happy Birthday" tag.



So there you have it...a perky project to brighten your day.  
I hope you like it.

Wishing you a magical day,
