Easter Basket

Hi Everyone,  well, the weekend is almost upon us!  TGIF!  It’s hard to believe Easter is almost upon us as well.

With Easter fast approaching I thought I would share a fun little Easter basket with you using your Cheery Lynn Dies!

They are just so much fun and easy to create and you can put your own personal flair on it.


To make this basket all you need is 12 cuts from the Nesting Eggs and a 6 sided Polygon for the base.

First cut 12 of whatever size die you want, I used the largest one and score them at 1 inch across the bottom.


Next attach 1 layer of the dies to the Polygon on all sides


I used a second smaller die with some DP to add some flair to the basket


Once you have the first layer completed, with the basket face down simply start to glue the second layer  of die cuts in so that they are evenly spaced between the layers, then decorate as desired.


Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B126 – Grass Border
B154 – Medium Rose
B155 – Large Rose
B278 – Lady Kate Edger
DL134 – Dancing Doily Lace Border
DL207 – Lace Egg One
DL208 – Lace Egg Two
DL209 – Lace Egg Three
DL210 – Lace Egg Four
DL212 – Lace Egg Six
XM-7 – Oval Classic
XM-18 – Nesting Eggs

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Easter.  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!
