Woven basket

Hi all,

Just a quick one as I'm about to head off on a girls' weekend to the Hunter Valley. I've only left Daisy once overnight and I've never left Martha, so I'm not sure how I'll be to start with, but I'm sure I'll have a good time and hubby is looking forward to having the girls all weekend on his own - something he rarely does.

Onto my project. I decided to make an Easter gift box to put a little soft toy in for Martha. She is too young for eggs, but I'm sure Daisy will eat her share anyway! I wove the basket from pink and purple bazzil cardstock and then used two cute Stamp Fairy images called Clementine Easter. The second picture shows the tag that is tied onto the handle. I would like to enter this into Stamp Fairy challenge - Easter baskets.
