Easter Basket

Good morning all! My kids are doing a writing assignment, so I thought I would post an Easter basket I made with a newly released Clear Dollar Stamp set called Barnyard Mischief, designed by Shawne. It fits the challenge they are having over at Stampin' for the Weekend, which is an Easter theme. I made the basket using my Octagon Nestabilities. I had planned to have a tutorial to go along with it, but time just did not allow.

Basically I used my Nestabiltie as a template to make the outside of the basket, and then I used the Scalloped Octagon Nestabilitie to make the bottom. I bunched the corners and taped them together to give it the grass edge. I'm sure that doesn't make any sense, and I should have actually taken pictures all along the way. I just wasn't sure it was going to work. Haha, live and learn right?!
