I downloaded my picnic basket template from Papertrey Ink. I used Sassafrass paper as my trim for the basket and ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the Harlequin folder. I then
sanded the embossing and went over it with copper ink from Martha Stewart. I repeated this step for the lid. I then took my Spellbinder Nestabilities and cut a scalloped circle for an embellishment on my basket and added a Fancy Pants chipboard apple.
Here is an up close picture of the embossed paper using the Harlequin folder:
My basket is filled with apple jam and apple muffin mix. I used the apple theme throughout the basket. I also embossed a strip of card stock to go around my apple jam jar with the Harlequin folder and added a Nesty with a button and stamp from Papertrey Ink.
This project was very easy to make and used only a few supplies. The Harlequin folder added such texture and dimension, that over-embellishing wasn't necessary.
