Altered Wooden Baskets

Hello,

I haven't done any paper craft in the past 3 months.  I had these wooden baskets sitting around collecting dust so a few days ago I decided to dress them up.  Boy! I had to dust some dust off my papers and punches. 

















All flowers were made by me. :)  The pink and yellow flowers were made using Caron Simply soft yarn.  They were the same flowers that I used to make the rose afghan but I like this tight stitches better.  Tutorial for the flower is here.  The other flowers were made using size 10 crochet thread.

Thanks for stopping by.

Helen

What cute little wooden baskets! I love the way you "dressed them up" with scrapbook paper and crochet flowers! They'd make some lovely gift containers - so pretty!
