There is something about women that makes us drawn to anything that is on a miniature scale; have you noticed that? That is one of the reasons why I fell in love with the new "Pack-a-Picnic" My Timeless Template that Lauren
has come up with. The neat thing about this particular template, is that it comes in two sizes. While they are both small and adorable, I chose to create the mini-size basket because it is just so darn cute! This particular template as well as another gem will be released on the 15th from Papertrey Ink
. Another thing that I love about the templates is that you can make them again and again and they don't even take up any room in my stamp space because they are all on the computer; nothing to trace, keep track of, or measure.
All I did for this template, was to print it out onto Kraft cardstock, cut and fold on the printed score lines and assemble. Easy, Peasy! The only "thinking" I had to do was to create the woven piece for the front and that was easy, peasy, too! I decided to keep the stamping simple, since the basket has so many fun details in and of itself, like the moving basket handles, the fun shape and the lid. I didn't want to cover any of it up, even though in the end I covered up the most time-consuming part. LOL!
Wouldn't these make adorable party favors or place cards! I can't wait to implement them into a party or shower that I host. Thanks for fluttering by!
