Not a Basket

Today I'm sharing my entry for Funkie & Frilly.
To follow the rules, I opted out of using an Easter basket.
Instead, it could be a jar, bag, or anything else.
I chose a small rustic box.
It's one of a few I made from reclaimed wood.
It looks so cozy wrapped in white burlap.
The jersey flowers are from Prima.
I used a Martha Stewart leaf punch.
I made my tag with Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints 2
The bunny is pop dotted up and has a genuine ribbon.
Using some distressing inks, I played around with
color blending (bundled sage & milled lavender).
I ran vintage hymn music through my paper shredder
and then through my crinkler!
It makes for some mighty cute basket "grass".
Those glitter eggs were from the dollar store! 
I pulled the pink out of the 6 pack for this little box.
I hope you have a meaningful & safe holiday.

  3. Jane, I love your rustic box! The burlap is the perfect complement to the rough wood. And the handmade grass is my favorite part!! Thanks for playing along with us at Frilly and Funkie!

  4. Hi Jane,

    I'm sorry to take so long to come by and let you know how much I love your Easter box! What a cute idea - LOVE the way you used the white burlap on it and all those different flower are just crazy cute! Love that blueprint bunny too. And what a brilliant idea to shred the vintage sheet music for Easter grass! So great to have you joining in the fun with us at Frilly and Funkie - thanks so much for playing along.
