Spring has Sprung Birthday Blog Hop!

The grass is getting greener, the trees are budding, and the flowers are blooming! All signs that Spring has Sprung!

For my project I decided to create this Sweet Treat Basket. One sheet of 12 x 12 double sided card stock scored at 4 and 8 inches on all sided 4 easy cuts (2 on opposite sides) a little glue and a few  1 x 11  inch  strips of card stock for the handle. I added 2 Lollipop flowers {first time I've ever made them super easy and cute} one on each side held together with a shinny crystal brad some fun ribbon for the bow. Voila we have a super cute basket to give a gift in or fill with "grass" and add some candy.
I will be drawing a name from all those who comment on my post for a little "SURPRISE" pack of Blog Candy. Just leave a comment for a chance to win. I will draw the winner next Tuesday March 27 th

Cute basket. I have made some like this and have not thought to use a brad to hold the handle on and give added strength. Thanks for that tip! Thank you for hopping along with me and helping me to celebrate my birthday.
