A tisket, a tasket...

I've dug into the vault, people. Yep, it's true... I've got nothing new for you. But, please enjoy this little tidbit for tonight.

I created several of these little baskets for last year's craft fair, and had a single lonely one left... so I kept it :)
I found them at Michael's, and dyed them with Willow Spray Ink, which is a green color that matched perfectly with this retired Merry Wishes paper. After cutting all of the paper pieces out, I aged them with Walnut Spray Ink and a sponge.

After gluing all of the paper to the basket, I stamped the little tags (I Love Snowmen and Snow Tag - retired, & Tag Tidbits) and tied them to the handle w/ jute & Scrapper's Floss, 'lined' the inside w/ tissue paper, and voila!
Ready to be filled with candy or some other little trinket.
I hope you enjoyed a trip to the vault. And don't worry... there will be more trips to the vault over the next several days because I will be up to my eyeballs in a little double-top-secret sumpin' sumpin' for my Winger DT projects.
