A tisket, a tasket
I made a card from a basket!
so when I saw a cut pattern for a doll shaped basket at the Paper Matrix I thought it might come in handy at some point.
When Sis's birthday came around this year I was having a hard time thinking up a card worthy of the occasion. That's when I remembered this
|Paper Matrix version|
If I would have gotten this idea a few days earlier I could have worked on smoothing out some of the rough spots in transferring the pdf to a cutting file, but since I was working on this at the last minute I used my exacto and sharp scissors to smooth a couple rough areas.
Didn't it turn out awesome! Love all the tiny details and all the layers (6 sheets of cardstock!!) And once I shortened the handle a little it fit nicely in a business size envelope.
After cutting and assembling (just a bit tricky) I scanned the completed piece and used the scanned image to make a little insert for the "card"
|Get it? Big and Small :)|
While you are checking out the Paper Matrix be sure to look at their hot air balloons and woven containers - you won't believe they are made from flat pieces of paper!!
|I sooo want to try these!|
