Twist on an Easter Basket

(click pictures to enlarge)

I'm in an Easter basket swap in a group I belong to and didn't want to do a standard Easter basket. hmm....what to make...what to use...Ahh-HA another of those light blub moments hit me! Why not use one of the cardboard suit cases I picked up at Big Lots a few years back! Perfect! Even though it already had decorative paper on it it wasn't what I was wanting since my person liked blue. I painted it with gesso then misted it with my Color Mists
I then added some decorative scrapbook paper, rub-ons, a few fairies, flowers misted with Color Mists and a bird or two. When I was finished I sealed the entire piece inside and out with what else but PYM II.
Here it is packed full of goodies!
Now all I have to do is ship it off!

  1. Aileen, I love this! That's thinking outside the box, or in this case, the basket!

  3. Another innovative idea - very cool, makes me wish I had joined the swap.


  4. Aileen, this is adorable and creative! I love it! And "she" will too!! What are the little white squares? All the goodies will be fun and the outside is decorated so cool!!

  5. Aileen this is adorable! Leave it to you to make better what someone else already thought was "finished"
