Easter Baskets

I am still in Easter mode making the last cards and boxes for Easter treats. For the 'Anything Goes' challenge at the Cheerful Stampd Pad I created some egg-shaped Easter baskets
Supplies: white card, Waltzing Mouse stamps and Nestabilities

If you would like to know how I made these baskets, here is how it goes:
First stamp the egg patterns on white card choosing any ink and colour you like (I used distress inks). Cut the egg image with the egg-shaped Nestabilities. I also used a smalled Nestabilities shape to cut out the handles - this will give some more little eggs you can use for further decorations (lol)
This is now a good time to decorate the egg shapes to your heart's content. I just added a sentiment (Waltzing Mouse stamp).
Naturally you need two egg shapes and one paper strip for the basket. I cut 5.5cm x 15cm paper strips in matching colours. I folded each long side of the paper strip (width: 0.75cm) and made little cuts into the sides so that the paper strips would take smoothly the shape of the eggs. The more cuts you make, the smoother will be the shaping of the strip.
 Take two egg shapes and a paper strip and glue them together with tacky glue
All what is now left is filling the basket (lol), Petra.
