So, what to do with this template?  Well, as my post title implies, I had this little song* in my head from the first time I saw it.  But green and yellow just didn't do it for me for some reason, and I wound up with this girly version:


I used Claire papers from Close To My Heart and kept it simple; I didn't feel like it really needed any embellishment. (Although, true to form, I did sponge Sunset ink on ALL of my edges and corners.)


I added bling brads to attach that cute braided handle to the basket - LOVE it!


I really dig the floral pattern on the lid here - I'm loving the idea of putting some sweet little treats in here for my oldest daughter for Easter.


Since the paper I used is double-sided, I skipped the liner (piece B) option. I love how everything is matchy-matchy!  You will love how easy this is to put together - it took me longer because I insist on sponging everything in sight with coordinating ink, but this is seriously a 10 minute project once you have the pieces cut out.

I hope you enjoyed my take on this template! Be sure to leave a comment then hop off to visit the rest of the Design Team. I can't wait to see their projects!
 *In case you're interested, A Tisket, A Tasket is a nursery rhyme I sang a lot as a child in the '70s. In the 19th century, it was a rhyming game played similarly to Duck, Duck, Goose. If you don't know the lyrics, here they are as I learned them:
A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it,
I dropped it,
And on the way I dropped it.
A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket.
I even had a green and yellow plastic picnic basket set, which my mom still has and the little kids still play with it!  Thanks for stopping by today! Have a nice time on the hop!

  9. I think this would make an adorable little easter basket filled with eggs, and I would maybe put an easter bunny somewhere trying to escape out, or dangling from the handles, or trying to climb into the basket! Love it, thanks so much for sharing. Charmain

  11. Lori, this is so cute and I love that childhood poem about baskets. My mom used to weave baskets and gave them away as gifts to friends and relatives. She'd make a little gift card with the poem saying ' A tisket, a tasket, you have Betty's Basket'. Always made me chuckle.
