Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Easter Fun

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project for Easter! Yesterday I shared the cute Slatted Basket tutorial that we ran at Splitcoast, and I thought a mini one would be fun to try. This one has a 2" base, and I made it from a 6" x 6" piece of double sided cardstock, then embellished with some cute die cuts.

I scored the 6" piece at 2" and 4" horizontally and vertically, and then scored 3/8" from each edge, and followed the directions in the photo tutorial for cutting and assembly. I used a 2" matboard Art Square from Inchie Arts for the base, and it's super sturdy. This is half the size of the tutorial model, and it's a great size for a little treat, a votive candle, or whatever!

(My kids love it when I stage photos... they were waiting behind me to finish photographing so they could have the gumball eggs! Aren't those cute though?)

Dies I used: Bunny with EggWheelbarrow
