Dollar Find Friday and Friday Night Chat!

Join us tonight right here in the TSG forum for our Friday night chat!

Today is my turn to do the Friday Dollar Find deal for the There She Goes blog. My find was this adorable little basket from Michael's $1.50 bins -- which are the $1.00 bins in the US Michael's stores. For some reason the price jumps by 50% when they cross the border into Canada!
I decided to turn my find into an Easter basket for my daughter. She loves pink so I made eight little tissue flowers in two tones of pink (see Wednesday's post here for the tissue flower tutorial) and stuck them around the edges of the basket with glue dots. Then I wrapped some thick, white satin cording I've had for ages around the handle and added a little bow with a button for a little something.
The bunny is made from the following punches:
  • Stampin' Up large oval punch (ears)
  • Stampin' Up small oval punch (ears)
  • Two different sized Nesties (for head and body)
  • A 3/4" circle punch (cheeks)
  • 1/4" punch (nose and eyes)
The cheeks are popped up, I drew whiskers on them with a fine tipped felt pen, and curled one ear so it looked floppy. Then I filled my basket with "grass", added my bunny, surrounded it with eggs and my Easter Bunny basket is ready to go :)
Thanks for stopping by today, and have a fabulous weekend!
