Valentine Berry Basket

Well, I finally got everything done!  I didn't want to post these until late today, so Rachel and Sarah wouldn't see them.  They have been searching all over for their goodies!  It's getting hard to hide things anymore.  When I saw this die from SU I knew I had to have it - I think it is so great!  SU has a video online and there are a lot of bloggers with a bunch of ideas for this great basket.  You can use this in so many ways.  It was a little pricey, but I think I will get a lot of use out of it.  I thought for my first time using it I would make some Valentine baskets.

These are the first two I made in DSP for some friends.  I used the chalk talk die cut for the tags.

Then I made some more out of CS and decided that the paper flowers I made the other week would be perfect glued on the side.

I used my heart embossing folder on the baskets made out of CS with some heart brads to hold the handle together.

I really like how they turned out.  A little grass, some goodies, a tag and we're all set to go.  I got Jennifer some books as she loves to be read to and a bag of mini gold fish - her favorite snack!  Well, as they say it's not fit for man or beast outside.  It is freezing here and the prediction is more wind tonight, colder temps. and snow tomorrow.  Joe took out the snowmobiles today, so I know what he plans on doing this weekend.  Everyone in the Pansy Patch wishes you a wonderful Happy Valentine's Day!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel and Sarah

Wonderful! So darling! I can imagine you will get a lot of use out of this die. So many ideas right here in this post. Love the embossing and flowers as well as the ones with the DSP and the Chalk Talk tags. Cute and fun!
