It's September 6, the day when the Limelight DT brings you fabulous inspiration for your Fall and Halloween Treats! :) For my project, I created a pumpkin basket for holding treats! I cut nine 1" x 12" strips of paper from the new Pink Paislee Twilight collection for the basket. Eight of the strips are hole-punched in the middle and fastened together with a brad. The ninth strip is the piece you see around the top, holding the basket together. I reinforced the inside of the basket by attaching a cardstock circle with the brad holding the pieces together. I then added a Large Harvest Bean Seed leaf-shaped felt piece to each side, held on by glittery Pink Paislee Bella Brads. The handle is made from two twisted pieces of kraft shipping filler that I received from our recent Unity Stamp Company shipment! Gotta love recycling. ;) Especially when it's cute! As you can see below, the pumpkin basket is filled with the Halloween assortment of peanut m&m's.... Mmmmm...... Ahem! Doesn't it look like the parts of a real pumpkin?
Let me know if you'd like a tutorial. I'm sure I could get that going for you! :) Can't you see so many possibilities for this basket, other than pumpkins?
Be sure to check out the projects created by my team! Their blogs are listed in my sidebar. Have a happy Sunday! We are off to a morning of worship and then straight to the NC mountains for an apple festival, swimming in the lake, and gem mining! I'll update with pictures, for sure!
