WOW! Has this been an exciting month at Papertrey Ink or what?!!

I’m going to have quite the creative meltdown when its over.

I have my favorite project to share with you today that I made using my Basket Basics © template (being released the 15th)


Simple Joys

For today’s project I combined 2 of the completedBasket Basic’s templates to make a basket duo!! Just make 2 baskets as directed, then using redline tape, adhere the sides together to give you one larger basket with 2 compartments.

Now you could even made it a quadruple basket and add all kinds of amazingness to it!

I used Kraft cardtock for my template, then distressed it with Tim Holtz tea and walnut inks.

I was so inspired by the design on the bath products that I used that as my inspiration for the gift. Its great to be able to personal your packaging to match you gift!


Its quite sparkly in person.

Spring rain was the perfect color.

The With Sympathy was used for my main image. Sentiment is from Green Thumb.

I put my handle in the back to look like many other store bought baskets I have purchased.

I LOVE packaging bath and beauty products, and now with this template you can save your money on the packaging (since the template is SO CHEAP!! with endless use :D) and use it on what’s inside.

Here is the side view:


Look at everything that can fit in there!

Top view:


We have a large body lotion, body wash, hand sanitizer, bath salts tube. body spray, bar of soap and a hydrating face mask! With a little room to spare.

Now speaking of a little pampering and SIMPLE joys……..

How about using our Round Wrap Up! © to package some tea packets?


Better yet, green tea!!

I know I package this stuff with like every template! LOL! But it really can be a thoughtful gift. Plus its very inexpensive. I love that.

You can get 1/2 a box of tea packets into this little template (OK I drank some so not all shown in photo-sorry! But you get the idea)


I’m on a gray and black kick. Add that pop of Ripe avocado and its really pretty striking don’t you think?

Another view:


This box of tea literally took me a commercial break to make! Cutting and assembling included!!

I LOVE the Garden of Life set, and thought the sentiment was PERFECT for this little gift.

So there you have my peeks for today.

I hope you enjoyed them!
