Damask Basket with matching box & patterned paper

Been trying to stretch out that vacation feeling, lately
but boy have I've missed you guys!

We had some great family time: a lovely visit on Vancouver Island.
We've gotten some household chores done. (With Charles's bum-knee and
my miscellaneous schtuff sometimes just getting the groceries all
stocked up feels like such a grand accomplishment!) :-D

We've also done a little happy hibernating:

(Our cat, Mouse, in a paper bag, heeheehee)

But since it's been eons since I shared a craft project,
I figured it might be time to come out of hibernation already!
So here's a printable template collection for that
curvaceous basket (now it's all doodled up with damask).

You can find the plain version linked in this older post.

You can find the whole damask set

( JPGs loaded to flickr
and links there to the PDFs on

Click the pics and choose save as to save as a jpg
(or if you prefer, you can click the links before each template if you'd like to
save the page to your flickr faves or find the links to PDFs)

The basket box:

damask patterned paper:
(to make a matching card, if you like)

jewelery box:
(2 and 1/4 inch square
1 and 1/4 inch tall)

Thanks for checkin' this out,

Man I need to buy a new printer... this template looks awesome, but it would cost me a fortune to print it on this stupid printer! Love the idea though. It would be great for putting my jewelry in. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for the gorgeous template Mel!! Am I the only one that had trouble with the side panels? When I clicked on it, I was brought to flicker and when I clicked on it again to save, it told me that the pic had some rights reserved... I'll try again later. ;)

Have a lovely day!

Mel just made an easel card and one of your card was the inspiration, happened to have the right papers and a good digi to go with it.
