But I love our blog! Eva does all the hard work making all these awesome projects, and I say, "oh cute, let me try that!" Of course it doesn't turn out looking as cute as Eva's, and it's way more work than I thought, and at some point I just say, good enough for me.
teachers' gifts? I thought those were the cutest gift baskets so I wanted to make some baby ones. This was actually the third and last basket I made. I think I was running out of steam and ran out of ideas on how to decorate it. I borrowed the color and pattern inspiration from Becky Oehlers who had a sample in the handout included with the template. The tag is made from the Wonky Rectangles Nestability (thanks, Eva!), PTI limitless layers, and the boy baby from TGF. I hand cut the banner...which is why the tails look uneven...so I finally caved and bought the PTI banner dies.
So this is the girl version of the basket. I actually made the first trial basket out of thinner cardstock and it turned out to be kind of flimsy, so I ended up giving it to my daughter to just play with. So I tried PTI cardstock for this basket and it totally feels a lot sturdier. You will probably see me using this girl baby paper over and over again, I have a bunch leftover from when I was made my daughter's first birthday favors. The tag is the heart doily die from Cheery Lynn with a teddy bear from the TGF baby set.pop up card? I thought that was neat too. I didn't realize there were so many little pieces in the pop up mechanism, I was getting a little confused as to what was the background and what was popping up, and what would it look like laying flat. So I just stuck to simple rectangles.
Happy 4th of July to everyone! Have a nice holiday weekend! I hope I don't melt in this heat!
