The challenge at www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com this week is to create a baby item. I decided to make something that would work for baby or Easter. This basket started life as a vintage fruit box that you used to get at fruit stands. My husband cleaned his parents' attic and found several of these. Since he knows me so well, he knew I would repurpose them into something!
This is the perfect size to fill with baby stuff like powder, shampoo, washcloths or even diapers and sit out on the dresser or changing table. I used the beautiful papers from the Sophia Collection from CTMH.
The bunnies are from the CTMH stamp set A Hop. I used Pear ink and 2nd generation stamped them. I then cut them out and stamped them in Pear and Hollyhock ink with the flowers from the Tea Time stamp set. I used our foam tape (LOVE this stuff) to pop them up and placed rhinestone flowers behind them (from Michaels). The "Happy" is from the Sophia Stickease and has $1 rhinestones added from M's.
I used Pear ink again to color the Kraft Color-ready border (so INEXPENSIVE & so FUN) and attached to the top edge. The final touch is the gorgeous ribbon flowers from Close To My Heart. Hope you likey-leave me some love and let me know whatcha think!
