Welcome back to The Pride's "Bouncity Bounce Bloggity Hop" Day 2! Are you having fun? Have you gotten some ideas on homemade gifts? I sure hope so! Remember, Elsa is giving away some cool Scrapping Candy so please make sure you bounce/hop along to all our blogs and leave a comment, to be eligible to win.

You should have arrived from Suzie's den, but if you arrived here by chance, please go back to the beginning, to Elsa's den.

On to my project for Day 2. I decided to make a little Easter basket. I've made this one before and I love it for its simplicity. It's a Gina K. Designs pattern and you can check it out here. I hope you get a chance to make it as I think you'll really like it, and you can use the basket for any occasion. As you can see, I didn't fill my basket with the usual Easter goodies. Instead I filled it up for a crafter! I used Bazzill cardstock for the basket and handle and more scraps for the panels. Do you see cute patootie Daba the bunny? I love him! You can check him out here, at the Sister Stamps blog, and get the story on how he came to be.

For the handle, I used some beautiful trim I got from Karla's etsy store and some pearl trim from Wal-Mart.

Here's a close-up of Daba ... isn't he the sweetest?!? I just love him!!!

Here's a close-up of the flowers in my basket. They are all from another flower company called All Natural Accents. You can check them out here.

I'm gonna be giving away an assortment of these flowers (and some other goodies) to one lucky commenter! In order to be eligible, please let me know what kind of project you would use these flowers on. Make it something creative! The best project will be the winner!

Hope you liked my project for Day 2 - I'm very happy with the way it turned out! Thanks for stopping by and please hop on over to Margaret's den. In case you get lost in the wilderness, here is the line up ...

  4. I love this basket Linda! I think I like it best filled with flowers :) Daba is just adorable! Let me see... a special project for the flowers... I have a fascination with hat boxes and so I want to make some mini hat boxes. I have the little paper mache boxes from Michaels which I am going to cover with pretty paper and add twine to make them look like hat boxes and then I thought I would either make or find some small hats to fit inside and they will of course need flowers and ribbons for decoration. I want them to look vintage. I am excited to start this project - I think it would be a cute spring decoration for my mantel :) Have a blessed Easter!

  5. I love this basket! The flowers are gorgeous! I will have to check out their site for sure!

    Your Basket is just too ADORABLE...BEAUTIFULLY done!! You are so incredibly talented and creative.
    I am redecorating my bathroom. I NEED some spring/summer cheer when I wake in the morning. I would string these flowers all along the edge of my mirror to create a flowery frame for this face that has been so transformed by illness. Not only would it bring spring into my home, but it would bring spring to my step too...A nice way to start and end the day!!
