Seasonal Baskets

I can't beleive this week has flown by so fast, I don't know where it went. We've been in the middle of having new windows and a couple of patio doors put in as well as having the house insulated and new siding so have been very busy.Of course there are always glitches....the sills under the back part of the house were rotting when they removed the siding so they had to be replaced, this meant the deck at the back had to be partially removed...ugh!! Oh well it'll soon be done and we'll have a lovely warm "new" house this winter.

The picture above is of a few baskets I made from 12x12 DSP( , you score each side at 4 inches and cut into the score line on two sides at the 4 and 8 inch score lines. The handle is made from a 1.5 x12 inch piece of DSP that has been punched with the eyelet border punch on both of the long sides. the fold up the two cut squares to meet half way into the middle square. These are secured with a brad through all layers and the handle as well. It takes about 5-10 minutes to make start to finish and it's really cute. These are great for holding candy, treats or light weight articles. They can be made smaller by usung paper 9x9 and scoring 3 inches on all sides or even 6x6 scoring 2 inches on each side. Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking.
