ODBD Bread Basket

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Hello All!! I hope you all are enjoying your week!!  This week I have been working on a tutorial for the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog on how to create a
gift basket. While I was on the roll, I thought I would share another tutorial on my blog for a Lattice gift Basket.  My completed project looks like this:

Here are the steps I made to make it!
Lattice Basket tutorial (3 ½ inch Base)

2 -12x12 inch pieces of card stock
lattice punch or punch of your choice
2 brads
adhesive- I used scoretap
ODBD Serve the Lord (for tag sentiment)

Step 1 Cut a 5 ½ by 5 ½ inch square.

Step 2 Score a line on all sides 1 inch from the edge.

Step 3 Cut on short scored lines to 1 inch score line on corners to create tabs. (See photo)

Step 4  Adhere corners on outside of box with adhesive to make a base for the basket.

Step 5 Cut 6 1x8 inch strips.  Score a line two inches from each edge on all strips. (See photo) I embossed 4 of the strips since they are going to be the base edge and top decorative edge.

Step 6 Using Large Martha Stewart Lattice punch. Cut 4 strips that are 3 ½ inches tall.  Adhere to the corners in front and back of base (sticking straight up like in the photo).

Step 7 Create a 3 ½ inch square template to guide you on where to make the top rim of basket.  Adhere unembossed strips together.  The strips will overlap by 1 inch giving you room to adhere them together.  Make sure punched strip is in front of the stripped rim.  It will be covered with a decorative rim later.

Step 8  Adhere decorative embossed strips on the front and back or the basket leaving the sides open so you can insert the handle.

Step 9 Cut 1 ¾ x 12 inch strip for a handle.  Punch a decorative edge on each long side (see photo). Decorate handle as desired.

Step 10 Adhere handle to the center of each side of the basket.  Glue down side decorative rims over top of the handles.  Secure with brads.

Step 11 Adhere remaining 2 decorative embossed strips to the base rim of the box.

Your finished box….decorate as desired.  I created a flower with the Small Sweet William flower from Our Daily Bread Designs on some Tissue Metallic material.

 Here is a close up of the Sweet William flower that was heat embossed using Sweet William and red metallic tissue material. There is a die from Spellbinders called Blossoms 3 which matches this Sweet William that cuts out this flower.  You then singe the ends of the fabric on a candle to the embossed outline to keep the material from fraying.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!! If you like tutorials or making gift baskets, you may enjoy the tutorial for this diaperfold gift basket which is posted on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog!!

This basket base is 3 1/2 inch and fits cookies up to 3 inches.  The image is Hydrangea and is framed with the Crocheted circle from the Serve the Lord stamp set and the Crocheted circle die from Our Daily Bread Designs Garden Collection.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!!

Have a great day!!
