An Easter Basket by Gerry van Gent

Hello Sizzix friends!
Happy Easter to all of you!
How many eggs did you eat already :-) ?

I decided to make a last-minute Easter decoration
at home so here I am today sharing the result ...
An Easter basket. 
660515 Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit (White & Grey)
Craft Asylum A4 Cardstock Sheets
660473 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Decorative Trim #2
660474 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Decorative Bubbles
*       *      *

(blue) Cardstock sheets come from Craft Asylum A4 paper block
which is included in the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit...
*      *      *
"Happy Easter" banner comes from Free Easter Paper Downloads

After die cutting the cute box I cut out the top part i.e. the "lid".
In this way I was able to create my basket.

After that I die cut the parts I needed for the basket handle...
The white thin chain-like die-cut comes from Decorative Trim #2 die...

Final result....

For the 4 sides of the basket I die cut the flourish motif ...
I used simply white cardstock which pops up very well ...
The top edges I decorated with die-cut scallops...

Now the basket is ready to be decorated and filled in with eggs....

This is one of the beautiful butterflies included in the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit...

I adhered in the middle an egg. 

The egg itself is decorated with the heart border from Decorative Bubbles.

Thank you so much for visiting us today!
Enjoy your Easter Weekend with your loved ones!
