SUOC53 Bushel of Apples

Today's challenge on Stampin' Up Only Challenges is to create a box or bag.  I love 3-D items, so for me it becomes which to choose...


I stumbled across an adorable bushel basket about a year ago, and I've been wanting to make it.  The template comes from Clear & Simple Stamps.  But what to put inside the bushel?  How about some apples?

Little Missy helped sponge the Summer Starfruit golden delicious apple.  She insisted it needed some green.  Here's a look at the tag.

I made the handle out of a wire clothes hanger.

Stamps: Perfectly Preserved; Paper: Summer Starfruit, Cherry Cobbler, Raspberry Ripple, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Orchard Harvest DSP; Ink: Wild Wasabi, Raspberry Ripple, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede marker; Accessories: Neutrals button, Early Espresso baker's twine, Silver brads, Full heart punch, Sponges, Cannery Set framelits, Big Shot, Wire clothes hanger.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow Heidi! That's quite an amazing project. I am so hopeless on 3D things; I wish I had just a hint of your talent.

I think the bit of green was the perfect touch by the way. lol I can't wait for Laila to be old enough to 'help'. :)

You already know that I think this is "da bomb"!!! I wondered how you did the handle...fabulous. Little Missy has quite the eye (no surprise) and the green apple is a perfect touch!
