Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge

This month our special challenge on Just Magnolia is to create/alter an Easter basket/container.  Lena Katrine has done the most amazing tutorial for us making a basket from paper weaving.  Now to be honest when I first saw the tutorial I thought – this is definitely not for me, I could never do anything like that.  WRONG!!  The tutorial is so well written and easy to understand even a simpleton like me could understand it.

So, here’s my effort.  I’m so pleased with how it turned out, although I think I should have used a paler colour paper for the basket.magnolia-paper-weaving-bask 

The paper is K & Co that I have had for a while, the sweet little Magnolia image is from the Winter stamp kit.

The image has been coloured with Inkadinks and Twinkling H2O’s.  The roses are, as always, from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Filled with some yummy choccie eggs.  This basket is for our Amy, and I think I will be refilling the eggs quite a few times before Easter lol.

Please pop across to Just Magnolia and take a peek at the fabulous creations the rest of the DT have made.
