Envelope Punch Board Week – The Open Basket

Stampin’ Up! UK Envelope Punch Board Week – The Open Basket

POOTLES Stampin Up ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD WEEK The Open Basket 2

 

When I was making this project up, I was originally working with a sheet of 12×12 paper, and although I absolutely loved the size of it, I didn’t want a cardstock version, and I didn’t feel that the really-quite-large basket’s handles would stand up to holding all that much.

There are most definitely many many ways to use paper to hold a multitude of heavy things (yes, this is another project in the pipeline!), but the decorative handles may have been mistaken for actual carrying handles, and they hadn’t been reinforced, so it was back to the drawing board.

Or more correctly, the string of growing numbers in my workbook and pile of discarded scrapper paper that I used for working on projects…

So basically, this is a miniaturised version, but it’s oh so adorable!

A demo friend of mine has seen a sneaky peek of this, and I know she plans to use it as hostess gift packaging, which I think is a marvellous idea!

    Can you tell me the score lines using a 12×12 piece of paper, please? That size would be perfect gifts we are giving to our donors for a non-profit I work with. Thank you so much.

  2. May I simply just say what a relief to uncover someone who truly knows what they’re talking about over the internet.
    You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you surely possess the gift.
