Birthday Scallop Circle Basket

There are only about 2 weeks left of Sale-A-Bration!  Don't miss this opportunity to earn free product with each $50 purchase.  It's a great time to purchase items from your wish list and to stock up on essentials that you need all year long.  This project today features some of the products that are available for free during Sale-A-Bration--and only during SAB. 

I have seen this idea around to make a scallop basket, but unfortunately I didn't keep track of where I saw the idea.  But it's a cute, simple way to make a little treat/gift pouch.  Just take two scallop circles (I used my Big Shot and Scallop Circle Die), score and fold down the middle, and adhere them together!  How simple is that?  

Here I used Peach Parfait and the Designer Series Paper from the Ice Cream Parlor Paper and Quick Accents pack--found on page 7 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  The tag was made using the Punch Bunch stamp set--also available for free during SAB.  

I stamped the birthday tag image twice, once with Peach Parfait, and once with Tempting Turquoise.  I hand cut the Peach Parfait square, and used a 3/4" circle punch to punch out just the 'HB' from the Tempting Turquoise image. The handle is held in place by Tempting Turquoise Glimmer Brads

Thanks for stopping by!  Check back tomorrow for another (more feminine) version of this same scallop circle basket.
