Pretty Gift Basket

I saw a picture of one of these baskets some time ago and thought they looked lovely, so saved the picture for future reference. 
Now that all the Christmas panic is over and there's a little gap before the Birthday List gets going I have a little time to just play.

This would be perfect for presenting a bag of mini eggs, a chocolate Easter bunny or something like that, but I raided my Molton Brown stash and filled it with these...and no, I'm not giving it away!

I used two designs from Funky Hand's Little Princess download, printed on either side of an A4 sheet of card to make this.  One sheet was enough to make the whole basket, though it's easy to adjust the size to make larger or smaller versions

 Materials and Tools
1x A4 sheet Bazzill Bling card in Diamond White
2x medium brads
Circle punch
Ink for edging, Craft knife

I had a couple of false starts before I got it to work, so thank goodness that for once I had the sense to use some scrap paper first before cutting up the I  "real" stuff. 
Anyway, I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking
