Patty Treat Basket


Are you sick of seeing my patty treat basket? I made this one for Beate. Not to give to Beate... although I would if she didn't live so far from me and she didn't hate peppermint patties, but for a tutorial on SCS. If you are signed up for the newsletter, you saw it yesterday. Thanks for all the sweet comments! :)

I wrote a tutorial for this little basket last year and I demo'd it for Stampin'Up! Regionals in Portland last October.... boy was THAT scary. I did it though.... I got up in front of ALL those people.... with a little help from my friends baby. :) I stood on stage with Shelli AND, I got a handmade card from her....... I'm saving it FOREVAH!

My sweet friend Asela Hopkins designs stamps for Cornish Heritage Farms and she sent me some of her ADORABLE stamps. Click here to see Asela's line of stamps! Asela is an amazing artist... AMAZING. You can click on her name to check out her blog if you don't already visit. I thought they would be perfect for a little patty Easter basket! I love all of her stamps... thank SO much Asela!!

I found some round easter chocolates at Walmart that fit perfectly too! They are Palmer brand and come in a big bag mixed with bunny shaped chocolates. I used the Round Scallop punch from Stampin'Up! to cover the candy and for the front and back of the box. The next scallop circle punch is a Marvy Round Circle punch (the yellow one). I got that at Gina K.Designs. The bunny is punched out with my Stampin'Up! Round 1 1/4 inch circle punch.

Thanks again for the nice comments.... I'm thrilled you like my little basket. I'd love to see what you do, so if you post to your blog or SCS gallery, leave me a link okay?

Have a great day everyone! I need to hit the dreaded grocery store today. Oh man... have I told yah how much I loathe going to the grocery store? I'm getting my coffee down and then going.... TODAY. No more puttin' it off. :)

I love these baskets!!!!! Cami, thank you so much for sharing this pattern. I have had this saved since last year and am just now making them. Oh my goodness, I've whipping these up like crazy today! Great way to use up those little scraps of patterned paper that I was saving for "some day/some project". I found the candy that you and Beate used to make some Easter ones.
here is the St. Pat one I made that I posted on SCS.

I made one of your baskets for Valentines Day...they came out so cute!! I gave them to my son's preschool teachers(there are 4 of them. I also gave them to the ladies in the nursery at church.) I just might have to make some for my MOPS table!!
