Doily baskets...

Hello Crafters,
My second post for the day! And, I have a reason why...Today is one of those days, you come across something nice and your heart and hands are restless until you sit down and complete that task!
That's what I felt about these cute, feminine, Doily baskets...have a look!

 I liked them so much, I made 2 of those, each a different style.

The 1st one is in sheer white! I have used printer paper and CLD(DL101) for the doilies.  Oh..I just love how delicate, pure and feminine it looks.
There are actually 6 doilies layered up for this! After layering, spritz it with little water and then sandwich it between 2 cups to get the shape and let it dry! This makes it really sturdy too. Easy right???

I have dry embossed the handle and have used CLD daisy die(B310) and used a white brad here for the center. The white feathers are also CLD(B369) which peeks out from the flowers. A simple "Thank You" with a few blings and the basket is ready and perfect to gift some hand made chocolates to your loved ones!
The 2nd basket is made from handmade paper and Kraft paper and inked heavily with wild honey, vintage photo and crushed olive.
The edges of the doilies are heat embossed with gold embossing  powder and so is the edges of the handle.
 Have stamped on the handle and daisy flower too is inked. The sentiment here is "Handmade for You" and adds  that personal touch while gifting!
That's pretty much it...I hope you now understand why I had to do this right away! Have you ever felt like let me know and also how you like this basket.

Am linking this too...
Until then,
Happy Crafting and Recycling.
