Picnic Basket Album


Good morning everyone!!! My daughter, Holly, and I went to another workshop in Waco yesterday and we made this adorable picnic basket and the album....we had so much fun!!  The basket was made by adhering strips of wood veneer paper to a cardboard basket. The gingham trim is patterned paper and the handles were added with brads.

Here is the album....the flowers were made from cupcake liners!


page 1 and 2

                                    page 3 and 4....what a cute idea to use the fork!!


                                  a flip up page was attached to page 4                                    

                                  page 5 and 6


                                   page 7 and 8....we adhered the paper plate, straw, and napkin                

                               
                                page 9 and 10...I just love the little tags!!


                                page 11 and 12

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful Sunday!!!
