The Easiest, Cutest Box!

Laura at Crafty Angels set a "fold it" challenge for this week, and Amanda's swap at our team meeting provided the perfect platform for this sweet little Easter basket. Here is the link to the origonal creation made the by the clever Monika, and it is soooo simple! You take a 21cm x 21cm piece of cardstock, score at 7cm & 14cm on each side. Fold all score lines, then fold in each of the corners, punch a little hole in the four corners, tie up with some ribbon and decorate. Does it get any easier than that? Here is a side view.
And here is a photo of the little tag that I made using the Greetings 8 set.
The colours that I have used here are bashful blue, almost amethyst, orchid opulence and whisper white, which are perfect for the colour challenge at Stacey's Stamping Stage.
