Mini jam basket

jam basket

Good morning campers!!

Now i have the editor back on track i can get on and schedule some blog posts!! yay!!

Here is todays little project, its a mini basket and it holds one 30g mini jam pot and its such a cute gift if you put it in a cello bag with some ribbon.  It uses just one piece of 6″ x 6″ designer series paper.  I think there is just a tiny bit of scrap.  So you can get lots out of your paper stacks.  I added some crepe paper to the bottom of the box really just for decoration and it holds the jam better.

So CLICK HERE to shop with me the products you need for this project are

  • Cherry on Top designer series paper stack
  • Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush cardstock
  • Bermuda Bay ink
  • Tree Builder and Word Window punches
  • Sprinkles of Life and Project life Moments like these stamp sets
  • Fast fuse and mini glue dots

Here’s the tutorial

Cut 2 pieces of your dsp to 2″ x 6″ (5cm x 15.2cm) score one piece at 2″ and 4″ (5cm and 10.1cm) and then score the second strip at 1 7/8″ and 4 1/8″ (4.7cm and 10.4cm) then trim off 1/2″ off each end of each strip.

Cut the remaining strip of dsp to two 1″ x 6″ strips and score straight down the middle longways at 1/2″ (1.2cm) fold them over.

Fold the main strips of dsp on the score lines and put the one strip on top of the other at opposite ways to form the basket.  Add adhesive to the two 1″ x 6″ strips on one side of the score line then add these to the top edges of the basket they fold over the top edges so it keeps it all in place.  I hope that makes sense!! but as always you can get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
