Basket with a handle

Looking for inspiration for a Spring Time Project this fabulous Tando Trug proved perfect.    No Chocolate eggs allowed here this year but it would make a love presentation box for one.

Gave the chippie a coat of white gesso for a base and then painted it with acrylic.   Stamped and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer coloured the pansies with Promarkers.  Assembled the parts and glued the base on the handle comes pre pierced and just needs attaching with split pin brads.   To finish all the edges run over with gold leaf pen.  

Now I've got a neat little storage bin for bits and pieces that looks much nicer than the usual cardboard box!   and its a useful size the base is 17cm x 10cm (6 7/10" x 3 15/16") and it is 11.5cm (4.5") deep.
