May Basket with Butterfly Gala

In April we start planning for May Baskets and I have a May Basket with Butterfly Gala bundle.  This basket would work for a little Easter treat but I really love the idea of a May basket.

My daugther, Katie, made this cute mini basket for one of our Cabin Fever treats.

I loved it so I made a bigger version using the Happiness Blooms Designer Paper.

Attach the small flaps to the inside so it looks like this.

Start wrapping designer paper around the base — start in the middle, not even with one edge.

You will overlap the two short edges, then……..

Flatten the edges lightly, and use the 1/”2 circle punch to create the opening for the ribbon.

Here’s what your box/basketball looks like — SO FUN!!

I decorated the front by cutting a Whisper White label using the Wonderful Romance Framelit and stamp the greeting.  Then on scrap Whisper White, stamp the butterflies with Memento and Calypso Coral and punch out.  Attach the butterflies with Dimensionals and attach the label to the front of the basket with Dimensionals.
