Moxxie {Easter Basket with Treat & Blog Hop}

I have a fun little project to share with you that's perfect for Easter! I used the beautiful new Springtime line from Moxxie aaaand it's the line you can win on our Moxxie blog hop! More details on how to enter at the end.
The colors are gorgeous and perfect for this project! I had so much fun creating this cute little basket and the adorable little treat that sits in it.
I started out with a full 12x12 sheet and scored in 3 inches from all sides. By doing that it should create squares in all four corners, I then went around and only cut one side of each square. Then you should be able to fold along the scored lines and have it start looking like a basket. I added adhesive to those squares and stuck all the sides together. Then to create the handle I cut two 1 inch strips adhered them together and onto the basket. Then added a brad on each side for additional support. 
For the front I took three different colored strips and used a Martha Stewart punch. I then added the swirly and tag from an older Moxxie line called Spring has Sprung.
Now for that adorable little "carrot" that is sitting in the basket. 
I followed an excellent tutorial HERE. On how to create this cute little "carrots". For a few extra details I used some green staples to hold the top and used a tag from the Spring has Sprung line and tied it on with some yellow twine.
Isn't that the sweetest bunny!? Here's a shot of the whole basket.
