Fancy Favors in Acetate and OCS name check

I can't believe that Easter is just around the corner! I'm finally at the tail end of my basket making! Today, I wanted to share with you a cute basket I made using the Sizzix XL Fancy Favor die. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite dies! To cut out the basket, I used a sheet of acetate that I bought from J's. This sheet is 12X12 in size so you can get two fancy favors out of it. The weight is perfect and I was amazed at how sturdy it turned out. The best part was that I only used three mini glue dots to hold the sides together. No other adhesive was needed even on the bottom. The acetate is stiff and sturdy and it just stayed; I was impressed! Here is the basket decorated with one of the 25 bunnies I finished. Here's a side view. I used my crop-a-dile to punch the holes on the side and added some grosgrain ribbon for the handle. I still have tons of these pretty ribbons from last year's SAB ribbon bundle.
Here are the names of the players for the April OCS. If your name is not on it, please send me an email asap. I will be sending emails this weekend.

Hi Teri,
Love your bunnies and this basket! You inspired me to make my own punch art bunny- boy are they a lot of work, but came out really cute so I think it was worth it.

Thanks for coordinating the OCS!
