Altered Wooden Baskets


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.

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!
