Mixed Bunch & Blossom Punch Class

This is what we did for class last night.  I found the Easter Basket over on Brenda Quintana's Blog.  You can see that here .  It's adorable don't you think?  The other 2 projects were ideas from Leadership in San Antonio.

Easter Basket

Supplies:  Mixed Bunch Set
                 Blossom Punch
                 Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch
                 Assorted Cardstock
                 Assorted Ink

Punch out 7 Flowers.  One green, 3 yellow, 3 color of your choice.
Bend each petal in and crease on each flower.
 The green flower is the base.  Take one color and put glue on one petal.  Attach it to the green on the bottom.

 Line up the crease.

 Attach the next flower the same way, overlapping the previous flower.
 Do this with each flower, alternating colors.  On the last flower, tuck it behind the first flower.

 Another view of tucking it behind.
 Glue each side petal to the basket.

 Turn the basket over and glue each bottom petal to the bottom.

 Punch out a handle with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  Attach one side in-between 2 petals.  Attach the other end to the opposite side.
 Glue the rest of the petals down.  Fill with candy eggs!
