Today I want to show you my little May baskets. As I said here, I like to use recycled anything to make other things. This was a pineapple can. I like the tin look, so I left that part intact, and didn't cover it up totally with designer paper. But you could certainly do that too.
Here is the "basket" empty:
First I punched my border using Martha Stewart's lace doily punch. My paper is from the Crafty Secrets line - called Radiant. I attached it to the can with Sticky Strip. On top of that I used glue dots to add a lace trim. I added two little stickers - also from Crafty Secrets "Wonderful Women"- and a giant Prima flower with a pearl in the center. (Click on either picture for a close-up view - the sentiment sticker says "Love You.")
The lilacs are in full bloom in my yard (see these pictures from a previous year at how many I have!) and I cut a couple of groupings to put in my basket. This would be so cute for Mother's Day this weekend!
It is now ready to hang on a doorknob belonging to the recipient! And now for the blog candy! Since I used Crafty Secrets products on my baskets, and also am so thankful for my stamping friends' support of my work and my blog, and just me (!), I am offering this darling acrylic set called "Support the Girls" by Crafty Secrets! I will be adding something every day for the next three days~
Remember to post a comment here and also on your blog telling about my blog candy with a link back here! I am hoping to have 100 followers by the end of May! (More candy then!)
Thanks for stopping by~ I hope you all have a wonderful day!
