Give a Gift
I just couldn't resist trying my hand at a "yesteryear" craft. You've probably all seen these holiday card containers, right? If you haven't type "card basket" into google. You will find all sorts of inspiration, designs, patterns and more there. I found my pattern on pinterest. I'm sure I could have designed my own pattern, but I wanted a starting spot, so this seemed more efficient. https://www.flickr.com/photos/27565576@N02/galleries/72157622977301187#photo_4204939498
Here are my finished pieces.
Now as you can see, I need to do a few more to really master the art of putting these together. But I really do like how they turned out. I kept it really simple for my first pieces. I will however be trying to crochet my edges with fancy yarn and such in the future. The video does explain the process and offers some tips. As for these pieces, well I think they will do just fine as a gift box for a small baby gift. Make sure to check out the google link, there are some really stunning pieces shown there. I know that I will be making many more of these, they are fun and its a bit of a surprise for you the maker, when they come together.
All the paper products used here are from the Special Delivery Collection and are 20% off until the end of April. Don't forget to stock up on some Dew Drops, they are a must have for this project and if you're like me, you won't be able to make just one, so get a lot of colors.
Imagine a basket for cookies, small gifts or keepsakes.
Thanks for watching. Lee
