Happy Fall Y'all

Happy Fall Y'all.. I thought I'd start out by saying that to get you in the Fall mood cuz who can believe it's really Fall and September is on it's way out already... amazing!...... now use your imagination when you see this darling Spring basket of yellow daffodils... picture it done in autumn colors (maybe Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie) .. now wouldn't that be perfect for your holiday table decorations or just to give to someone special as a cheerful reminder of what they mean to you!

It's a great 3D project created by 
Allison at Sweet Impressions blog.

She used typing paper (does anyone have any of that stuff anymore??) to trace one side of the basket and then used that as a guide to cut out pieces from Gumball Green cardstock. Each side is done separately so you'll cut out four pieces.

Before she glued the Gumball cardstock to the basket, she created the lattice-looking lines using Early Espresso. Create the lattice by first scoring at 3/4" increments in both directions, then folding along each score line. While one line is folded, run the line through a Versamark ink pad. After unfolding, heat emboss with Early Espresso Embossing Powder... is that clever or what???

The flowers were created using the Floral Frames framelits and Boho Blossom punch. She wrapped the handle with Daffodil Delight Seam Binding ribbon and added Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon over the top.

To get the grass and flowers to "stand up" instead of just flopping around, cut a piece of cardstock and use an exacto knife to cut little random slits. Then just poke the grass through the slits! The 'platform' that is holding the grass is just set into the basket... it isn't actually attached to anything.

Like I said... clever!!!
