Easter Treats

It's almost Easter!  Are you ready?  Have any little ones in your life?  Of course you do! 

My kids are grown and I don't have grandchildren yet, but that didn't stop me from making up some little treat holders.  I do have great nieces and nephews!  I made these little treat holders using Bo Bunny Double Dot Supplies.  These are about the size of a cupcake holder.

 I really love how the new Bo Bunny Striped Double Dot designs worked with the woven look.

I used a variety of punches for these.  To make the bottom of the holder lay flat, just clip in a bit between each scallop.  This will also give you more work space to glue them together.  I used a 2 1/2 circle punch for the bottoms.

 Tip: I made the woven pieces all at the same time. I did the weaving on top of a 4 1/2 by 8 inch piece of cardstock. I then cut them into 1 1/2 by 8 inch strips to make the baskets. The weaving was done with 1/4 inch strips of the Coffee Striped paper. Be sure to use enough tape underneath to hold all the strips in place when you cut.

Supplies used: Double Dot Papers Coffee Stripe, Coffee Dot, Ocean Dot, Wasabi Dot, Buttercup Dot, Citrus Dot, Blush Dot. Double Dot Ribbon Concord, Kiwi and Butter Cup.
Other Supplies- Misc. Border Punches and 2 1/2 Circle Punch.
