Altering with Bo Bunny

The Bo Bunny Design Team is altering today! 
With Easter right around the corner, I decided that making an Easter Basket seemed like a perfect fit.  I haven't decide where I'm going to put it.  I am leaning toward putting it on a cake plate and using it for a centerpiece on my kitchen table. 
Easter Basket
I am loving the new doilies from Bo Bunny!  I used them to make this 'ruffle'.  Each package comes with 20, so there are lots to use!  I used 14 for this basket.  It has about a 22 inch circumference.
The flowers that come with each collection are so pretty and so easy to layer.  I finished off the centers with little pearls from the jewel package that co-ordinates.
A border punched strip topped with a straight strip is added for the handle.
After glueing down the doilies, I finished off the inside to cover up the gathered and glued sections.
Tip:  To make the ruffle, fold the doilies in half and gather them up with your fingers.  Glue each one to the inside of a paper mache box. 
Be sure to check out the Bo Bunny Blog for more altering ideas!
