How to Make an Apple Crate  and Guinea Pig Basket using the Cheerful Basket Bundle and the Glad We’re Friends Stamp Set. For the greetings we used the Charming Sentiments Bundle. 

Both baskets were made with the Kraft 6″ x 6″ Paper and it’s a little sturdier than our regular cardstock. 

Don’t let this little crate intimidate you… it’s super simple to make using the Full Basket Dies!! 

This little crate or basket will hold lots of snack size candy, here’s some examples: Tootsie Fruit Chews, Rolos, Werthers Original, Hi-Chew, Hershey Kisses, Hershey Nuggets and more!!

The little guinea pig is from the Glad We’re Friends Stamp Set and I colored them with  Stampin’ Blends Markers, Gray Granite and Crumb Cake.  After I colored them I fussy cut them out with my Paper Snips Scissors.
