It's almost time for Easter and all things round and chocolate! At this time of year, I love to create custom Easter gift baskets or boxes and fill them with Easter Eggs. Here is one Easter gift basket that I have created using the gorgeous Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and limited edition Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper...

This gift basket is a fabulous design by Jo Blackman and is sized to fit a rather large Easter Egg! I have decorated the outside panels of the gift basket with strips of Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and finished the top edge with a ruffle of ribbon. This ribbon is the lovely, soft, Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. To get this pretty, pleated finish, I added a long length of Tear & Tape Adhesive right around the top of the basket, removed the tape backing paper, and then added the ribbon by pinching it and sticking it to the double-sided tape.
I finished my Easter gift basket with more butterflies because you cannot have too many! For the large butterfly, I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock and then coloured it with Just Jade, Mint Macaron, and So Saffron Stampin' Blends. I used the Brilliant Wings Dies to not only die-cut out my coloured butterfly but to also die-cut two intricately detailed butterflies in Vellum (to overlay the large butterfly) and Blushing Bride cardstock.
