Stampin’ Up! UK Envelope Punch Board Week – The Open Basket
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!
So you want the video, right??
And of course, the all important dimensions.
