"Love Is In The Air" Whimsical Wednesday Challenge



Hello everyone! It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This time the challenge is to create a Valentine's Day home decor, or any home decor project that has to do with LOVE.
I created this paper basket. It was kind of a pain to put togehter and quite time consuming but I like how it turned out. I found THIS pattern and used it to create my basket.
For the sides I made paper flowers using Flower Shoppe and added heart brads to the centers. For the front I added that super cute owl sticker that was from a set that I bought at Wal-Mart for .97 cents! I hand cut the tag and stamped it with a stamp from Whimsical Designs With Love stamp set and glued it behind the sticker. Don't you just LOVE that sentiment! To finish I added the handle which I punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. Here is a picture of the stamp set I used:
I hope you all will play along in the challenge and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team has made. Have a great day!
