Tutorial Tuesday: Vintage Valentine Basket

Here's an adorable paper basket using a popular image from our Vintage Valentines collection.

Says Shelley of the Paper and Flowers blog:

After I had the basket with the blue angel sitting on my desk for a couple days, I got to thinking that these baskets would make good Teacher's gifts for Valentines Day! To make this basket more in line for Valentine's Day, I used pink, white, and red streamers at the bottom of the basket. I also used pink and white beads on the handle.
