Easter Baskets

It's Xyron week over at the Imaginisce Blog this week and today it's my turn to share my Easter project.
 
 
Easter in our house is all about filling cute little baskets with lots of goodies.  What better way to use some fun bright color paper and make your own baskets. 

 To make these baskets I used a cut file by Lori Whitlock and cut out the basket shape with my Silhouette from three coordinating colors and used pieces from each color to make the woven piece for these fun little baskets. 


Then I used the Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the basket together and adhere the bottom circle of the basket to make sure it held together well.
 
For projects like these you need a good strong adhesive and the Xyron Mega Runner was perfect. 
 
My son (and I) are in love with these cute little "fluffies" and he always asks to give them out to his classmates.  I was so happy to find a bag at Michaels with these nice bright colors.
 
 
I used the stickers and an oval punch to make a fun sentiment for the front of the baskets.  To finish off the baskets I added a few candies in plastic eggs and I was done.
 
For more great projects stop by the Imaginisce Blog and the Xyron Blog. Thanks for stopping by the hop today.

You have almost certainly saved enough programs at this point to be considering iphone app notices and the way to management them. Handling mobile app notices is under configurations then alert. By opening this area, you are able to management which apps send you notices, exactly where they appear, and just how usually they look as well. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Micr33oe5e[/url]
