Special Wishes Flower Basket

Hello Friends,
I have a flower basket to share with you today. I had a lot of fun making this flower basket and I hope you are encouraged to make one too. The beautiful dies and stamps make it really easy to create this project.


For basket base, cut a sheet from Raindrops on Roses Paper Collection to 11” x  11”. Score at 3” on 4 sides and make 4 cuts from border to the 3” score mark as pictured below.

Die cut and emboss 4 pieces using the Galicia die set and Raindrops on Roses paper collection. Color edges and embossed area with distress ink. Glue 4 die cut pieces to the 4 sides of basket. Fold sides of the basket at the scored lines and glue sides together to form basket.
Die cut bows using Filigree 3D Bow and Classic 3D Bow with contrasting paper colors and layer together to form bow. Die cut 2 Filigree strips from the die set and glue onto a ¾” x  11” piece of cardstock to make handle. Attach handle to basket with strong tape.  Assemble bow together and glue at the top of handle.
Cut 4 pieces measuring 3” x 5” with floral sheet from Raindrops on Roses and glue to the inside of the basket for a finished look.
Die cut 4 tickets from the paper collection and adhere to 4 sides of basket with foam squares.
Stamp and die cut Arianna Blooms using Warm Violet chalk ink and gray cardstock. Color edges with Violet Metallic paint, shape flowers and glue on 4 sides of basket. Die cut leaves using the small vines from the Cut, Mat, Create sets and glue under flowers.
