From Your Heart to Ours - H2H Challenge

This week at the Heart2Heart Challenge - we'd like you to share a home decor item that you make (or have already made) using CTMH products!  This made me think of a little item I'd seen floating around the boards a year or so ago... a little woven paper basket.  A Google search led me to a tutorial on SCS, so I pulled out our new Kraft paper, inked up the edges in chocolate ink, and started weaving.  The actual weaving & assembly took less than an hour - and the end result is adorable.  It stands 3 1/2" high, and I'm going to use it for different seasonal decor - with Easter just around the corner, that's where we're starting.
All supplies are CTMH - Kraft cardstock; Copper brads; 3/8" twill ribbon; Chocolate ink.
Check out what the design team has in store for you, and be sure to link up a picture of your own creation :o)

Your basket is beautiful! I tried one a couple years ago and got so frustrated making it. It was really hard to make. Yours looks amazingly perfect! Love it! *Ü*
