Woven Paper Basket Birthday Card

This little paper basket is woven together in the style of the valentine baskets you probably made as a child.



I put Dove chocolates inside and gave it as a birthday card.




The pattern is from Papermatrix, a site I highly recommend.  

I traced their pattern and cut the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo.  I also used the Cameo to draw the "Happy Birthday" sentiment using the pen holder.


After I finished, I realized I was supposed to layer the grass behind the flowers.  Whoopsie.  A little trimming too care of that so the flowers could peek out.

Layering with the flowers on the bottom does make the inside very pretty, however.




And then I couldn't get the point to come together properly so I had to cut apart the last strip at the point.  That little bit of grass and the flower is a disguise.
