Filigree Corners Basket Tutorial

Hi there friends, yesterday I shared the card I made for my friend and today I share the gift.  It’s a gift basket that’s easy peasy to make using Filigree Corners Die Templates.  Lol, this has been on my desk for a month – it’s one of the items I made to send to the UK, but alas it was too bulky for that trip.  I might add that this is definitely something I’d give locally and with the right, snug box, I’d even put it in the mail. Once made I set down to think about what I might like to put in the 5-1/8″ x 5-1/8″ basket – hmmm, fat quarters, soap, flowers.  In the end, I filled the bottom of the basket with shred and then added delish Ferrero Rocher chocolates – 16 to be exact and they fit perfectly in a four by four arrangement.  Here’s a link to the actual tutorial pin on my Pinterest Boards for an easy repin —-> Filigree Corners Basket Instructions :-)


That’s it for today, I hope you all have a wonderful week :-)

    What a fantastic idea Becca – your creativity never ceases to amaze me, Shame we couldn’t see it in the flesh on Create and Craft! xReplyCancel

  • Lesley ThomasSeptember 30, 2013 - 1:24 am

    Wow, I love your basket! I have the corner dies, but was wondering about the handle – I think I’ll have to invest in that punch, it’s beautiful and would be so useful.ReplyCancel

    It´s an awesome and beautiful basket Becca, and thanks soo much for doing the tutorial, but I´m really sad to see, that everything is changed again again, so it´s impossible to get it if you´re not on Pinterest. Normally I always use to just mark it up and print it out, when I want to try one of your tutorials, but for some reaon it´s totally impossible, and if I try to save the pics and add them into a word document I just get a link to this here, and with my computer in one place and my craftroom in another, it´s impossible to run forth and back to see on the computer and back to do something, so this obviously means, that I wount be able to use your great tutorials anymore, which I´m really sad about. I´m just too old to start all over and get into Pinterst and begin to learn all that now too, so guess us a bit older will soon be all out on everything online, as it seems everything is being changed these days and made more and more complicated, and we seems to have to be on everything everywhere if we want to follow anybody now a days. But I want to thank you very much for the really great years, that has been on your blog until now. I have really enjoyed all your wonderful tutorials and gorgeous inspirations I´ve found inhere until now.
    Best of luck with all these new changes to you too.ReplyCancel

    I too am not linked or use Pinterst – but, with help from one of my five
    daughters —I’ll learn soon.
    This BASKET IS PERFECT – for: hostess gift, a day of the week gift
    to someone or – even better yet, a Treat to give a office receptionist to
    pass around. When my husband was in practise – the best part of the
    day was when a understanding patient came in with goodies for all of us.
    Thank you SOOO much for this and of course the Tutorial.

    God Bless you . .

    Hi Becca. I love this basket, it is much bigger than I expected, which makes a pleasant change as so often these type of baskets are only tiny, and you then have to do the math to enlarge them (I hate Math!!!) Take care.ReplyCancel

    Hi Maryann, not sure which changes you are mentioning. The tutorial is right here, you’re looking at it dear. It’s the grouping of pictures just above the comments so all you have to do is right click and save as, as you have always done:-) As a courtesy I mentioned that I’ve posted it to Pinterest as well. For the last year or so I’ve posted all my cards to Pinterest because they are all in one place and because many follow me there as well. Hope this helps. Pinterest is as easy as pie, but please only go there if it is something you want to do.ReplyCancel

    Easy peasy!!! What an adorable idea as centerpieces or placecard holders for any function requiring a little extra finesse. The bows and flowers add a lot but the filigree really makes it, but then look who the designer of the dies were LOL. Ordered the Lacey tiers last night. Thank you girlfriend!!

    Beautiful and just perfect for our loved ones who have a penchant to those little gold wrapped pieces from heaven.
    Love and crafty hugs

  • SheilaOctober 2, 2013 - 1:08 pm

    Wonderful again, Becca! I have one question though, I have the EK success scroll pattern edger punch but it punches the pattern @ edge. And that edge is @ the center of your handle!… how did you do that! Advice please… :-)
    Thank you muchReplyCancel

  • Becca FeekenOctober 2, 2013 - 4:21 pm

    Hi Sheila,
    I’m not understanding your question. I cut my strip double width and punched down one side, turned the paper around and punched down the other side. I hope that answers your question :-)ReplyCancel

  • SheilaOctober 2, 2013 - 5:21 pm

    It absolutely answers the question… I was punching this pattern on the edge of the paper and was wondering how could you punch it as a mirrored pattern. So how did you manage to align the punching on both sides so accurately… I’m an engineer and really appreciate your precision in craft and would like to be able to re-create the same in my projects.ReplyCancel
