    Are you looking for a simply unique basket to present your gifts in? Well I think you will find that this one is so “berry” sweet!

    This basket style is like no other. No fancy weaving needed! (unless you want to)

    Fashioned after the fruit containers you find in your grocery store, you will fall in love with this new take on it!

    I’m certain you will find it perfect for every occasion. The basket is quite large (and can be resized), and can be filled with a wide arrangement of gifts such as:

    An Apple a Day Pretty Pieces Cut File

    Use it as an Easter Basket for the kids!

    Handmade cards

    Real/artificial fruit

    Real or artificial flowers

    Jars of jam

    Baby items for a shower, or new arrival!

    Homemade soup

    Bake mixes


    Home baked treats

    Office supplies……Endless ideas!

     Now that you know more about the template, let me share the details of how I made my basket!

    I cut my Berry Sweet Basket from chocolate cardstock.

    I tied on a red gingham ribbon, then added the jam jar from the Well Preserved © set. The jar was cut out using the Well Preserved © Pretty Pieces Cut File.

    I was able to stamp the top “plaid” pattern in red, like the ribbon. I tied the top wih some embroidery floss.

    I stamped the label onto the “jar”, with the apple image, so it would coordinate with my¬†¬†Berry Sweet Basket¬† contents.

    The sentiment was stamped in the center of the label for my Berry Sweet Basket from the NEW! Occasional Labels set which was cut using the Occasional Label Pretty Pieces Cut File.

    I stamped my sentiment “Happy Trails” which I “built” using the NEW!¬†sentiment building images from the Sentimental Occasions set. You will fall in love with the possibilities of this set ūüėÄ

    ¬†The “to you” is from the Just For You ¬©¬†set.

    I obviously chose to fill my basket with 7 of the An Apple a DayÔĽŅ Pretty Pieces Cut File. Really cute, fun and easy! They are a perfect addition to this template.

    An Apple a Day $2.50

    ¬†As they say an apple a day…

    Now giving little treats can’t get ANY cuter.

     This cut file makes the perfect party favor!

    ¬†Fill these “apple” favors with flavored hard candies, chocolates, mints, or other candies of your choosing, for a unique wrapper that is sure to make them smile! You can put in little handmade soaps, tea lights…or other fun treats!

    In mine I put 4 chocolate candies.


    You then take a brad, prongs face up, and insert it through the hole of one of the panels.

    You then take the opposite panel, and put the prongs through that one, as well.

    Repeat this until all ends are through the brad prongs.


    Depending on the look you want, apply your “leaves” to the brad.

    Fold down your brad prongs. This securely closes your “apple”.

    Then top your “apple” off however you see fit. I used a brown, pre-tied bow as my apple stem!


    Change the “color” and the “apple” can quickly become a pumpkin, orange, muffin, cinnamon bun, blueberry, a sewing pin cushion, stack them to create a “snowman”, or Santa Claus…maybe even a cute little bunny!

     The only limit is your imagination!

    This is my entire gift ensemble!

    I also used the NEW! Pretty Pattern 03 Sketch for part of my project.

          I had fun with this sketch, and loved making my card to match my Berry Sweet Basket !

    I decided to use my Harriet Hop-Along Basket Single © РDigital, which I mirrored. I then took the heart patch, and bow from the Harriet Hop-Along Birthday Single © РDigital set, and added it to my Harriet Hop-Along Basket Single © РDigital image.

    I love having these possibilities to transform my images in so many ways be it in size, mirroring the image, adding/layering other elements, and even digitally coloring if I want.

    Here I obviously used my Copic Markers, and doodled on the little flowers.¬†I also made my own grass too ūüėÄ

    In order to “match” the ribbon on my basket I printed the GaGa for Gingham ¬©¬†paper, as my patterned layer. Too fun! This also matches the Pretty Pattern 01 Challenge!

    I used the butterfly from the Tending The Garden ©  set, and added a flutter trail using the Fanciful Flourishes © set.
