My Sweet Little Babushkas!

Hi all!!!
So, how much fun is this?! Babushkas for Easter from CS Designs! Here's a little fun fact: my mother-in-law is from Poland, so these designs are near and dear to my heart.  When I was playing with these, I knew the projects I made would be going straight to her!

Since we are hopping around, helping the Easter Bunny, I knew I had to make a basket! This will be my baby's second Easter and I'm hoping this year she will understand it a little better than last year (she didn't really get it then)! So, I made my own basket out of K and Company paper and embellished it with some Stickles, rhinestones, ribbon, and of course BABUSHKAS!

I think I'm going to make little mini baskets for my son, daughter, and maybe a few other lucky family members for Easter this year.  It was easy and fun to do! Just make 9 equal squares on a sheet of paper.  I used 2 sided paper so both sides looked good.  Score all the squares, and cut up to the center square on the top and bottom.  Fold, and hold together with a brad! Easy peasy!  Here is a close up:

After working with these fantastic images, I knew I wasn't done yet! What would a basket be without a matching gift tag??!!!

I used the same papers and elements as the basket, but I added a die cut flower I made and I added a little beauty mark on her face, a la Marilyn Monroe. I just couldn't resist! I have to say it was quite a challenge to take these pictures - my daughter kept stealing the plastic eggs that were supposed to be my props in the pictures! My silly little girl!!!
