Isn't this the cutest? From a small distance it actually looks like one of "those" baskets! Up close you'll see it's just textured cardstock! In this case, River Rock sponged with Close to Cocoa. It's a little time intensive, but I had to make one and I'm glad I did. The tutorial for them can be found here. I had to make an extra strip and tighten mine up so the studded piece would fit, so be sure to measure exact and keep it tight! The new poly twill ribbon would be fabulous for this, but I don't have mine yet. : ( I reached for this ribbon instead but it was a little flimsy so I spread some elmer's glue across it with my fingers to firm it up a bit. The brads are from the Vintage pack. What do you think?

Dawn,
I love it in this color, too! I think you did an awesome job. To me, it looks pretty much exactly like mine- I certainly don't think mine looks better-lol! Thanks for the comment though :)
