Fall Harvest Apple Basket

Edit: This little basket won Honorable Mention at JustRite Friday Challenge 038, Top 3 at Really Reasonable Ribbon and Top 3 at the Fairy Fun Friday Challenge!




I hope you are having a great weekend. Before I make dinner I wanted to share a little project I have been working on today! It's a basket I made from a tutorial on The Pink Elephant challenge blog. The tutorial calls for using a brown paper bag, but I wanted mine to be a little sturdier, so I used decorative paper instead. It was really easy to put together and only uses one piece of paper!



The JustRite Friday Challenge this week is to make a Fall 3-D project and I thought this would be perfect for the occasion! I stamped my Autumn Blessings image and border with Memento Rich Cocoa on Neenah off white paper and colored it with copics. I really like this image and I had fun coloring it up too! I inked up the edges with Memento Bamboo Leaves and mounted it on some pumpkin colored paper cut with Spellbinders dies.

I added all the extras like a few Queen & Co. pearls on my image, some pumpkin ric rac, a shiny red organdy bow and some rustic leaves cut with my new Heartfelt Creations dies also made by Spellbinders. The handle has a brad attaching it to the basket on each side. I think I will use this on Thanksgiving as a side table decoration!
