My Teacher Rocks - Basket

If you are looking for the My Creative Time sneak peek #4 scroll down or click HERE.

Hello sweet crafting friends, I wanted to submit a project that I made for the Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday Challenge. It has been a busy week so this is going up right at the last minute.

I made a fun little container to put some pencils and other supplies in. My daughter's teacher asked for some pencils, erasers, glue sticks, etc. I thought they would look cute coming in this basket.

This basket is super easy to make and only requires a sturdy piece of 12 x 12 paper. This was some cute paper by Me and My Big Ideas. HERE is a picture tutorial that I found a while back on  Kristal Andrew's site (Getting Cricky) blog. These are super easy to make.

The AWESOME sentiment is from the My Teacher Rocks! stamp set by My Creative Time. I've used this set A LOT and absolutely LOVE it!!!

The ruffle along the top is crepe paper. I got this fabulous idea from Kimberly over at My Craft Spot. I love the way it dresses things up. The pencils are from the Smiley Card Cricut cartridge. The adorable faces are by Peachy Keen Stamps - Boy Mates and Princess Faces. The twine at the top is by Trendy Twine.

This also seemed to fit the criteria for the Pinkalicious Blog Hop and Challenge so I wanted to enter it there as well.

Alright I think that about wraps it up. I hope to see you in the morning for the My Creative Time September Release Blog hop!!! Have a fabulous night! Hugs- Glora
