Week 6 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas

 It's hard to  believe that we are half way through the 12 Weeks of Christmas.

Here's what I have for you this week...
Party Favor Basket

Originally I saw this idea on Kathie McGuire blog. I've added and changed some aspects to make it my own.

You will need to make this basket:
(1) 12" x 12" piece of Cherry Clobber card stock# 124272 (1) 2 3/4 x 12 Letters to Santa designer series paper# 122349 (1) sheet of Shimmery White card stock # 101910,  (2) 10" pieces of 1/2" Cherry Clobbler Seam Binding Ribbon # 120992, (4) Real Red Designer Series Brights brads #121006, Crop-A-Dile #108363, Bone Folder #120300, Paper Snips # 103579, Snowflake Punch # 119852, Doliy Triple Layer Punch #122465, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack # 118309, Simply Scored Scoring Tool # 122334, Mini Glue Dots #103683,Snowflake #2 Die #113460, Tasteful Trim Die # 120893.

On one side of the card stock, cut both of the scored lines to the intersection of the scored line above it. Turn the card stock 180 degrees and repeat on the opposite side. 

 For the handle you will need (2) 2 3/4" x 12" piece of designer series paper or card stock. I used the Big Shot Machine and the Tasteful Trim Die to make my handle. I folded the paper over and cut both of the handles together. Set aside.

Next, cut out (2) snowflakes using the Big Shot Machine and the #2 Snowflake die, set aside.

Next, on one edge of the card stock, take the outer square on both the left and right side and bring them to an angled point on top of the center square. This step helps to form the side of the basket. Attach  along with the handle with an adhesive of your choice or use a brad. 

I added a bow on each side of the handle using Cherry Clobber Seam Binding and attached the bows using Mini Glue Dots.
Here is a better view of how I overlapped the outer squares and tucked in the middle square and attached the handle and snowflakes with a brad.

Note: Make a small or medium favor basket by increasing or  decreasing the card stock or designer series paper to 6" x 6" or 12" x 12". (divide the card stock or designer series paper into 9 equal squares.
