Decorate To Celebrate - Easter Baskets

Happy Wednesday!!!
I hope you all survived April Fool's Day yesterday :)

Today over at Decorate To Celebrate we want to see
Easter Baskets!!!

Yup, Easter is just around the corner and it's time to start thinking of all the fun baskets you can create!
My favorite thing about Easter Baskets is what's IN the basket :)


Just kidding! 
But I LOVE Cadbury Mini Eggs and this year I discovered
Oh Boy!!! Delicious!!!

Anyway, for my little basket I decided to make the same type of basket I did for St. Patrick's Day.
I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and cut the Nut Cup at 5 1/4" out of some purple card stock, then I cut the same cut at 5" out of some fun pattern paper from SEI.  I cut that into the different side sections and used my ATG to adhere them together.  I cut the cute chick from Create A Critter 2 at 2" along with the grass.  The pink bunny ears are out of some glitter paper so it adds to the cuteness, you just can't get the full effect in the pics :)  I used ribbon from American Crafts for the handle.  The sentiment was from Hobby Lobby and I used Elegant Edges to cut out the scalloped mat to stamp.  I attached the sentiment onto a craft/Popsicle stick and stood it up in the plastic grass.

Now all that's left is to fill it up with candy!!!

I hope that you will join us for this challenge,
 and remember, you can always link up Birthday projects too!
