Tilda Gift Basket

Tilda Gift Basket

Kraft card
Cookie Dough by Kaisercraft
Spellbinders circles and scallop circle dies
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Magnolia Tilda with Spoon rubber stamp
Copic markers
border punch

This project felt really good to make, as it's my first attempt at colouring in months.  My thumb is still quite rigid so my technique is a little different, but I was still relatively pleased with the results I got.

I followed >this< tutorial for putting the basket together.  The measurements included in that tutorial are in centimetres, and my Scorpal is in inches, so I cut my 12" x 12" Kraft card down to 10.5" x 10.5" and scored it at 3.5" and 7" on each side.  Any measurement divisible by 3 would work, e.g. for a smaller basket cut a 6" square and score it at 2" and 4" on each side.

Before assembling I used a heart shaped border punch by Fiskars on the uncut edges, and I used the same punch to create the handles.  All of the edges have been inked with Frayed Burlap distress ink.
