MINI EASTER TILDAS ON A MINI HANDMADE BASKET

Happy mid-week fellow crafters and Maggie lovers!  Hope your week got off to a good start and now we're almost half way to the weekend!  I finally was able to complete a mini basket that I started over the weekend and only now have the "real mccoy!" to share.  I bought the Grand Labels Eleven die set from SB although I don't own the Grand Calibur yet.  I get to use my sister's Big Shot Pro when I need to.  But I wanted to see if I could use it at home and found that the second from the largest die fit through my Big Shot!  I started scoring and cutting to see what else I could do with it and came up with this:


This is the front of the basket.  It's tiny and perfect for the mini Tildas!
The basket measures approximately 3" wide, 2" deep, and 2-1/4" high.  With the handle it's about 4-1/2" high.  I used a piece of DP 6" x 8.5" for the die, and a strip of CS 1-1/4" x 8.5" for the handle.
The next pic shows the back of the basket.  Notice, I'm not naming the images because at the moment, I can't remember them!  My sweet friend Suzan stamped and sent them to me!  (Thank you, Suzan!)
The third pic shows the right side of the basket and I left the other side of the basket blank because that is where I will add a tag for the recipient.
The fourth pic is from the top looking down into the basket.
If you would like to make a basket like this, I have some pics of how I scored and cut the Grand Eleven Labels die below.





If you have questions, you can email me for clarification.  Sorry this was done so haphazardously, but at the time I made these notes for my own "memory jogger" so I could make more baskets!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It's either blurf or blog and sometimes I am not able to do both in a day so I hope you understand LOL!  I'll be making my rounds to visiting all your wonderful sites soon! 
Maggie Hugs,

Jaw-dropper! Luv this basket and luv the tutorial you put together. Awesome job Cami! Hey, can the Grand dies really fit in the Big Shot? I can't afford the Pro either . . . man, I think I have to think again about purchasing some Grand dies now. I luv the larger shapes. Thanks Cami!
