Favors for Mother's Day Lunch ???? + CTMH Class 3/15/16

Today the Splitcoast Stampers Weekly Inkling featured a Slatted Basket with tutorial.  I got to thinking that if I sized it down it could make a nice favor for my annual Mother's Day Lunch.  Using only 1 piece of CTMH 12x12 double sided paper, I made this cute 2" square basket.

I really like how the slats on the side bow.  That's what initially caught my eye.  Splitcoast's Weekly Inkling really knows how to push my buttons and send me right for paper, glue, scissors, etc.

With a small 4x5.25 piece of pink scrap from my newly organized (thanks to my grandson) scrap box, I was also able to make these two cards from the remains of the same 12x12 sheet of paper.

And, I still have these pieces left.  
 Not much, but I'll use them for something!

Oh my, I just took a chocolate chip cake out of the oven and does it smell wonderful.  It's definitely worth the quick trip to the store when I realized I didn't have enough flour and everything else was already in the mixing bowl. (Don't you hate when that happens!)

Back to my blog post...

I am entering the slatted basket in these challenges:
