Hello, hope everyone having a wonderful day.  

I finally got to make a Slatted Basket this week, and I thought I would show it to you.
It was fun to make and would be a perfect little gift filled with whatever
suits the reason for the the gift-giving.

Since we are so close to Easter, I placed a small fuzzy chick and some sparkly eggs
in mine.

I used one sheet of 12x12 paper for the box base
1 Sheet of 12 x 12 paper for the slats
White card stock for the scalloped border
Ribbon for a bow
I cut everything out before I started so I could just
assemble the basket all at once.
I found the video for making this basket at:

and MayMay takes you through each step with wonderful
Southern Charm and humor!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later......
