Scor-Pal and Heartfelt Creations with Gini Williams Cagle

Hi, it's Gini, and I'm so excited to share my Scor-Pal/ Heartfelt Creations project with you today.  Sometimes a simple structure is best, if you want to add lots of beautiful embellishments.  That's why I decided to make a very simple basket, to really show off the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations products.

Take a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock, and score at 4" and 8".  Turn the paper to the right and score again at 4" and 8".  Cut the corner blocks away, leaving a cross shape. (Leave a 1/2" tab on both sides of the upper and lower center squares to adhere the sides of the basket together.)

 Apply Scor-tape to the tabs and assemble the basket.

 Cut a strip of paper for the handle, and decorate with Parisian Accents border die cuts. Also add ribbon to the middle of the handle. Attach handle to the inside of the basket with the tape. That's it for the basic structure.  Easy-peasy.

 Next add decorative paper panels to the inside and outside of the basket.  Die cut 4 sets of the Ornate Gateway dies, and adhere to each of the front panels. Stamp, cut and shape the Striped Sun Kissed Flowers.  Add to the top of the handle.  Add pearls to the center of the flowers and along the border of the handle. Take a bought oval tag, stamp the sentiment and heat emboss with powder.  Stamp the birdhouse over the sentiment.  Ink the edges, and glue a small flower to the lower corner.  Cut two of the Ornate gateway toppers, and add to the sides of the tag.  Finish with ribbon and twine to attach the tag to the basket.

You have turned a simple box into the most incredible keepsake. I can see this as a gift basket for someone special filled with hand made soaps and lotions. Delightful project!!!
