Golden Bunny Baskets

More bunnies today!  Orange, brown and green may not be traditional Easter colors but I thought they were pretty with the gold of the chocolate bunnies.
I used the new Beyond the Garden DSP for the flowers and the leaves.
These three little baskets were super quick to make.  There have been similar ones done before but I thought I would do a little tutorial with the measurements so you could easily reproduce these if you would like.

The colors I used for the baskets are Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, and Garden Green.  The Beyond the Garden DSP looks very nice with these shades.

1. For each basket cut one top note shape, two 1"X 2-1/2", and one 3/4" X 11" pieces of cardstock.
2. Emboss the top note and the side pieces with the square lattice folder.
3. Make two score lines 3/4" from the center of the top note.
4. Score 1/2" from each end of the side pieces.
5.  Using sticky strip add the side pieces and the handle.
6. Punch three flowers with the Boho Blossom punch.  Scrunch the flowers up. Layer all three, pierce and add a brad to the center.
7.  Leaves are punched with the 2-step Bird punch.


  1. cute idea! this will be on my punch inspiration blog post tomorrow. TFS

  2. What a great project - the perfect size for these little bunnies. I might just have to hop off and make 3 very quickly for my 3 liitle bunnies sitting patiently upstairs!!
