By The Spellbinders Blog.

Last week, I was reading a post on Julie Overby’s blog about how she created an Easter basket. It was so easy and fast that I had to make my own. Thanks for the inspiration, Julie!

Using the Grand Nestabilties Grand Labels Four #6 and #5 (the smallest die template is #1), I cut/embossed two different pattern papers in the Grand Calibur. Then I adhered the papers together.

On a score board, I placed the die cut on the long side. I scored a line at 4 1/2″ and 5 1/2″ to make an inch fold in the middle.

Using Classic Square LG #5, I cut/embossed two squares for the ends. I scored at 3/4″ and 1 3/4″ on the sides. For its bottom, I scored 1/4″ and cut with scissors the short score lines to fold into the ends.

Then with adhesive tape, I adhered the square die cuts to the ends to create the base. What a great shape!

Next I embellished the front by cutting/embossing with Floral Doily Accents Border, Flowers, Long Doily and Floral Doily Motifs Large Doily. I trimmed the border and then adhered it to the front.

I added a rhinestone swirl to the front before layering the die cuts with a combination of EZ Runner and White 3D Foam Squares as shown. I loved how I can easily layer the different pieces in the Accents and Motifs Collection to create a beautiful design in my projects!

Grand Nestabilities Tip: The difference between die template sizes within a Nestabilities set is ½”, which becomes a ¼” border when layering. The Grand Nestabilities increase in size from the original set, and maintain the same increments between die templates.

These shaped containers may be my new favorite projects to make!
