My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Egg Basket

Edit to add: Lindsay's stamps are available at Shop Handmade where the everyday special is spend $5 and recieve a free stamp. Click here for the Egg Basket.

Hi Everyone! This Monday morning the team from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is featuring "Anything but a Card," so are you up for some creativity?

Easter is just around the corner, so I decided to use the printable Egg Basket template and make a cute, little treat basket for Easter. This set of printables comes with all you see here; lots of options for all your holiday crafting needs.

This sweet little basket was the perfect size to hold one of my decoupage eggs. I don't have SCAL, so I simply printed and cut out the template by hand. So easy!

I used some rick rack and pearls, and embellished the basket so that it would look like a traditionally decorated Easter egg.
I added some more rick rack to the handle and secured it with a punched flower and brad on the side.

This would make a cute addition to any Easter brunch or dinner table! Stop by Lindsay's blog and the rest of the team and see what sweet ideas await you there!

Many thanks for the visit, and below are the challenges this project is linked to:

Oh Karin decoupage easter eggs, it's been a long time since I've seen one and it definitely brought back memories of Germany :-) It's beautiful! and that basket is perfect with that beautiful egg. I was kind of surprised to read that you don't have SCAL since the basket looks so perfectly cut. The whole project is beautiful.
