Fun with Basket Bunch

Basket Bunch 

Happy Thursday!

Before I dive into the Artisan blog hop for today, I thought I would let you know where I’ve been.  Not much creativity has happened over the last few weeks.


What’s Happening!

Last Wednesday my dad had surgery to repair a hernia.  Since then it’s been one complication after another, and he’s still in the hospital.  My family has been taking shifts to be there with my dad during his entire hospital stay.  I’ve been there at night with him.  Night shifts bring me back to my nursing days years and years ago.  I worked many night shifts back in the day.  However, I was much younger and didn’t have kids.  Needless to say, my body only wants to sleep ALL the time when I’m not with my dad.

I keep praying that we will see a change for the better.  It’s been a roller coaster ride.


Chocolate & Bunnies

Thankfully I had this Artisan project done way ahead of time to share.  I haven’t stamped anything in a few weeks with Alexis competition schedule and now my dad.

I’m sharing a fun project using the Basket Bunch stamp set with the Basket Builder Framelits.  This bundle is so fun and has the cutest little images.

I love the color combination of  Mint Macaron with Kraft cardstock.  That little bunny sure makes a statement.

Favors using Basket Bunch

I wanted to create a simple party favor for Alexis to hand out to her friends at school.  I love that I can still do this.

Creating these are super simple.  I used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper and wrapped in a cone shape.


Tips & Tricks

Keeping them together is easy using the Tear and Tape Adhesive.  Once the cone was created I folded the top over,  stacked the two doilies together and lastly stapled the Sale-a-Bration ribbon over the doilies.  I love the soft pastel color combinations the designer series paper offers.  I added a simple banner across the top and of course a little bunny.

The finishing touch was the tassel.  This tassel comes from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.

I simply tied the tassel around the ribbon using Linen Thread.

Of course, don’t forget to fill your bunny cone favor with a fun chocolate or jelly beans.

You can see all of the products I used for this project below in the clickable links.
