Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
I've wanted to learn how to weave baskets since, yep, the 70's when basket weaving was really cool. There was even a class at the local university, but you had to be an art major and I was a business major. (Huh? Me, a business major?). Paper Craft Planet ran a 3-D challenge (3D52) at the beginning of the month that included some links with great tutorials. Snap! I had to try it!
I added just a little extra color to the basket by weaving some May Arts ribbon and matching paper into the basket. I also added some more tea-stained lace . . . you can see a little better from the back.
I made the basket to match this card.
Here's a close-up of the bunny tag and the Copic markers I used to color it.
