Pink Paislee and Scor Pal Picnic Basket Tutorial

Hi Everyone, it's Lori here , I'm so tickled to be able to share this adorable picnic basket I made using Pink Paislee products and of course my Scor-Pal.  It's a perfect place to tuck a homemade goodie gift for that someone special. I will say Pink Paislee's paper is such a heavy weight you can make this basket with just their paper, no cardstock needed.  Let's jump right into the tutorial so you'll know how to make your own.

Supplies: Pink Paislee Designer Paper Portfolio, Pink Paislee Alphabet Sticker Portfolio,, Pink Paislee Artisan Chipboard/ Hearts, Pink Paislee Artisan Wings , Scor-Pal, Scor-Pal Tape

Other Products Used: Distress Ink, Liquid Pearls, Distress Markers, Velcro Fasterners

Step One: Cut designer cardstock 7" x 8 3/4 " and score on all four sides at 1 1/4"

Step Two: On all corners score from the intersected line of the first score to the corner and fold mountain up as the shown picture.  Once you have it scored you'll want to be sure you crease your corner line well with your Scor-tool for a crisp edge.

Step Three: Apply your super strong Scor-Pal Tape to the inside of the mountain folds and also along one side and glue the mountain together and then to the interior of the box.

Step Four: Cut strip of designer paper to 1 " x 7 " and score at 1 1/2 " x 5 1/2" and fold.

Step Five: Using your Scor-Tape adhere to the middle of your basket.  This is going to add strength but will also give a base for you top.

Step Six: Cut your designer paper 7 1/2" x 4 1/8" and score at 3/4" , 3 1/4", 4 1/4" and 6 3/4".  Fold your  end scores up and your middle the opposite.  Apply tape down the middle of the top and adhere to the middle bar/base of your basket.

Step Seven: Cut a strip 2 " x 10 1/2" and score at 1/2' and 1 1/2" and fold inward and glue together.  Apply handle to the outside of your basket and decorate as desired.
