I made this Valentine Basket today after one of my customer's sister came to our workshop yesterday and designed something similar. First, I cut my Whisper White cardstock at 5"x5" and cut it out with the Scallop Square. Between the third and fourth scallop, I scored it on all four sides and creased really good with the Bone Folder. Then I applied hearts with Snail Adhesive on the four middle sections. Next put the square through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder through the Big Shot so the hearts become embedded into the sides. Now, you might want to fold it on your score lines again because you'll need to cut up to the fold on the two sides opposite each other to form your basket. Use a 1/16" hole punch to punch through your basket. The handle is about 6" long and 3/4" wide. I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch on Real Red cardstock and attach it to Whisper White handle with Snail Adhesive for the handle. I used silver brads and tied red ribbon on each side.
