Easter Basket

basketTodays share is an Easter Basket I made for my son and his house mates.  Using the Petal Cone Die, I used alternate color panels.  I scores each panel about half way down and folded under to create the bottom of the basket.  I reinforced this with some covered cardboard so it will hold the treats I have to put inside.  I used the scallop from the dies to add interest to the flap by alternating colors again.  I topped each scallop with a bunny cut from the Ears To You stamp, (spring catalog) or an Easter egg.  I then filled with some “grass” I had in the drawer and before I mail it I will fill with treats.  I think the kids will get a kick out of this basket coming in the mail- what do you think?

Have you ever sent Easter treats to your kids away from home?  What kind of things did you send?  Leave me your thoughts in the comment section below!
