Baskets and Blooms Turned Treat Purse

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by!  I'm in for a super busy weekend so I set up some posts for the weekend ahead of time.  Hopefully they will post at the right time! :)
Today's post is a project that I am doing at an upcoming workhop.  It uses the Bags and Blooms Sizzix Bigx XL Die in a different way.  The fab-o Angie Kennedy Juda showed me how to do this on her blog.  Check out her tutorial and all the amazing things she does HERE.


  1. Die cut 2 baskets from the Baskets and Blooms Sizzix Bigx XL Die in Old Olive card stock.  Follow Angie's awesome directions to cut and score your baskets.
  2. Stamp the bat from the Halloween Frights stamp set in Basic Black randomly on the baskets before assembling them.  Assemble baskets as shown by Angie.
  3. Stamp spider from Batty For You stamp set on Whisper White in Basic Black twice.  Punch one out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and just the spider on the other with the 1" Circle Punch.  Adhere the spider with a Dimensional to the larger spider image and layer onto Only Orange punched with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. Adhere to basket.
  4. Add approx. 6 1/2" of Striped Pumpkin Pie Ribbon to basket handle and tie in knot.  Add treat! :)


  • STAMPS: Batty for You, Halloween Frights
  • INK: Basic Black
  • PAPER: Old Olive, Whisper White, Only Orange

Hope you are having a terrific weekend! Today I will be knee deep in little girls making Build-A-Bear projects for my daughter's 8th Birthday Sleepover party.  Wish me luck!
