7gypsies Camden Easter Basket and Box

Wow I had so much fun creating with the 7gypsies Camden paper.  I decided to make some gift containers.  Great ideas for all the gifty stuff coming up: Easter, Mother's Day, Graduations, teacher gifts, not to mention my hubby's birthday and our 12th anniversary.

First I created a sweet little mini basket.  I used 3 paper lunch sacks which I cut down, layered, and glued together.  Then I added a crepe streamer ruffle and snipped it up to look like grass.  After that I covered the inside and out with rectangles of Camden paper.  I embellished with the gorgeous Prima flocked rub-ons.  I used 7gypsies tape to cover the seams and coordinate with the grass color.  I made the handle from an extra piece of paper bag wrapped with ribbon.

My favorite part of the project is (of course) the seam binding bow which I stamped with the Crafty Secrets Bonjour stamp set.

 The next project I made is an apple pie box.

Here is a close up of the amazing Prima flocked rub-ons.  They go on super smoothly and are raised up a bit for a really cool texture addition.

I hope these simple projects gave you some good gift giving ideas.  Be sure to click over the Sheri and Jenna's blogs to see their projects too.  Or drop by Mystic Paper in to see them all in person.



Sweet as can be! The little basket is a gift in it's self!
