Ta Da Tuesday! A Basket of Variety!

I love baskets! I have such fun making these and they're just as easy as can be. And adding some of these cutie doll Belles N' Whistles makes it all the more adorable!

Here is a couple of different views of them. Would you believe that these are beer coasters covered with card stock? I punched the holes with an ice pick (can't find my crop-i-dile) and threaded some gingham ribbon through the sides. I love the paper here and filled this sweetie with push pins, paper clips and Post-Its.

I colored my images with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and added some Glossy Accents and Stickles to them and cut them out and framed them with my nestabilities.

I added a couple of buttons and cut out flourishes and waves from my EK Success punch.

Here is Belle Sitting With Teddy. I just adore her big bows in her hair!

And my Sweet Teddy Bear Picnic is a perfect way end this post, having a cookie! I hope you enjoy making one of these cute baskets and fill it with whatever you like! So tell me, what's your favorite back to school item?


  1. Great idea and great for kids to do aswell, I just love making bookmarks, I can't help it. Apart from Hubby we all read in our house a lot. Even my 3 year old has a book in his hands a lot too, although he can't read yet.
    Loving the daily posts.
    Happy crafting
