Picnic Basket

I think I'm officially addicted to 3-D projects, especially goodie bags. As soon as Melin @ Cooking with Cricut told us this week's theme was "picnic", I remembered this adorable project I had seen that just stuck with me. How cute is this for a summer treat?! You can fit quite a few Hershey Kisses in there :). It actually was not as hard to put together as I thought, and oh, the possibilities - colors, patterns, embossing, etc. - though I chose to keep it simple my first time around. The only cricut here was the patterned "picnic-looking" paper inside the basket...

Now to give credit where credit is due - because this brilliant idea was not mine. I found directions for this cute little basket at Creations by Patti. While you're there, be sure to check out her Watermelon Basket as well!!! So darn cute!!


  1. That is an adorable basket!!! Oh my goodness! I've never made anything 3D other than flowers with my Cricut, but it will definately be coming soon.

    And thank you so much for the link to the sour cream containers!!! They are adorable and SO CUTE! The best ice pops ever came in containers like that when I was in school, so it brought back some memories. And I don't own paper crimpers because I never knew what to do with them, but now I have another wish list item to add to my never ending supply of craft materials!

    Again, thanks so much!


  2. This is completely adorable! Thanks so much for posting the link.

  3. So cute! Thanks for the links too. I think I saw this once a while ago, but forgot about it. I am so glad you remembered ;) I like the simplicity of your picnic basket; your papers are perfect.

  4. LOVE IT!!! TFS
