May Day Basket Tutorial

First I started with a strip of Whisper White that is 2 3/4 x 8 1/2. Then using Bud Basics I stamped in Basic Black then using the crayon resist, I sponged with Lavender Lace, Pretty in Pink and Wild Wasabi.
Then I layered the white strip on Elegant Eggplant that was cut 3 x 8 1/2. Next I attached it to Lavender Lace that measured 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and stamped the word happiness from Warm Words.
For the next step I used sticky tape to form a tube and closed off the bottom like for a sour cream container.
After that I crimped to seam the end and make sure that the sticky strip really sticks.
The last step was to punch holes in the sides and thread ribbon through for the handle, so that you can hang it on a door knob. Finally I made "flowers" with pixie sticks and flower stamps and punches.
