Hello everyone. Today I want to share a tutorial on how to create this shabby chic treat basket designed using a couple of basic Spellbinder's dies. I made mine for Valentine's Day, but the basket is something that could be used for weddings, baby showers, birthdays and other holidays as well.
For this project I created my first video tutorial. You are invited to watch it over on my You-tube channel : PaperliciousDesigns .... but no laughing, teehee. Ok .... you can laugh, because I"m laughing along as well. I can tell you it's wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and I certainly hope I improve.

You can check out the video HERE
