Scallop Circle Die Easter Basket

A couple of days ago I shared my Easter Nest tutorial with you. My Scallop Circle Die Easter Basket is based on the same concept, but with just a few changes. It is almost as easy to make as the Easter Nest, and has the perfect oval shape for an Easter Basket. If you would like to make your own, just watch my video tutorial below. If you click on the bottom right-hand corner of the video box, you can expand the video to full screen to see more of the details.

Details: The petals-a-plenty embossing folder is optional, but it gives the Easter Basket such a springtime feel. The butterflies are so easy to make with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and a little sponging with Marina Mist ink. The “Happy Easter” greeting gets cut off a little with the Oval Punch, but I think it looks fine this way and then it can be layered with a scallop oval. The Glimmer brads add just the perfect sparkle and hold the Blushing Bride ribbon handle in place.

Toni asked: "what size is the scaloped circle? i dont have the die but if i had an aproximent size i could make it with something else."
The scallop circle die is approximately 4-1/2" in diameter. There are 30 scallops on this particular die. I hope that helps!!
