Splitcoast Tutorial: Santa Pants Basket

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is an adorable gift container for the holidays - click over to view the Santa Pants Basket tutorial!

I decided to go my own way with the tutorial and create some elf baskets. This first one is a little more traditional - I used a die from Paper Smooches to create the zig-zag border, lining it up and repeating the cut across the bottom of my long strip of paper. This die is actually from a Halloween die set - I have started a collection of the "Card Dies" from Paper Smooches, and this element was perfect. 

I also thought a nod to Buddy the Elf would be fun - so...

The curved cut was done with another Paper Smooches die (Snowman Card set). To cut the buckles I used 2 Spellbinders dies together to create a frame - I folded the cardstock underneath the dies to cut both buckles at once.

These are actually quite roomy containers, with a 4" x 5-1/2" base - they'd be great for a bag of goodies or small gift.

Have fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
