Creations by AR Hop-A Picnic Basket!



 Hello, and welcome to the Creations by AR New Release Hop!
Today, the AR team is featuring Adela's newest creation, 'My Picnic Basket'.
Here is the sweet basket, done up with lots of grass, candy, and ribbon, just in time for Easter!  Note that I do NOT have a lid on this version.  It is an open basket!

Most of you know that I don't have a cutting machine.  
What I love best about the Creations by AR templates, is their PDF files. Each template comes in PDF, SVG, or DFX files. If you are lucky enough to own a machine, or lucky enough to own a sharp pair of scissors, you can create your own beautiful projects!
Here, I have used some pretty pearl brads, and a darling pre-colored digital image from Doodle Pantry.  For this version, a lid was added, for a typical picnic look.
 
I found some pretty double sided cardstock in my stash to create my basket with!
You are SO going to want this template!
Here is a shot with one side of the lid raised at the 'hinge'.  How cute is this???!!!

Can't you just imagine this at a wedding or baby shower, or a child's birthday party? Too much fun!
Last, here is a photo with both lids up at the 'hinges'.

You want this, I know you do!
HOW CAN YOU WIN THIS TEMPLATE?
 Blogs to visit:

Comments will be accepted until March 24 (12:00 noon EST)
One random winner will be announced on March 25th, on the AR Facebook Page, AR PCP Group, and AR Blog.
 
 Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hope to see you soon, and good luck - hope you are the lucky winner!

Hugs,
Patti J.
