Scallop Envy Easter Basket

Here is an adorable basket for Easter!  or for many other occasions!  I received one of these in trade at the recent Lincoln Half-Day Regional from Jennifer Thomas, another SU! demo.  It is a very quick, easy basket to make!  Here is Jennifer's:

To make this basket, you need the Scallop Envelope die for the Bigshot.  Cut two of those.  Cut one strip for the handle, either 1' x 11" or 1" x 12" (depending on what size CS you have!).  Cut another strip for the sides/bottom 2" x 7-3/4".  Score this last piece at 2-1/4" and 5-1/2".  Jennifer used DSP around hers. 

Here is the one we made for a club project.  Note that you will want the prettier side of your Scallop to fold OUT on your basket.  We stamped under that with the Egg Hunt Wheel using Versamark on Lavender Lace CS.  We wheeled the sides & handle as well.  Attach the basket together using Sticky Strip on the tabs and bottom of the envelope.  You will also want some Sticky Strip to hold down the scallop flaps.  We stamped the Bunny from the Eight Great Greetings set in Stazon on Shimmery White CS and colored with markers.  Punch it out with the Wide Oval and attach with a Pop Up Glue Dot.  The handle was attached with Mini Glue dots at the bottom edge and we added a decorative brad on each side.  LMK if you have questions!
I'm trying something different with this post (Blogger Draft to post at a later time), so if the format comes through all crazy I will be back in to fix it as soon as I can after it posts!  I hope this works so I can do posts ahead of time!

Those baskets are adorable, but given the every-weekend snow storms I don't know if they will get any use this year. :)
