Today's MISM project is a little late, but I wanted to first post a photo of the latest tutorial available at Craft Project Central. I mentioned in that post that I enjoy learning to make boxes, and such was the case with this little basket. Actually, I made a larger version of a Bag in a Box using the Envelope Punch Board and, instead of giving it a boxy shape, I turned it into a basket. My designer paper was 7-1/2" square, and I punched and scored at 1-3/4" and then slid the paper over to the 5" measurement and punched and scored again. After that, I just used the previously scored lines to determine where to punch and score on the remaining three sides of the paper. I used Stampin' Up!'s Pomp & Circumstance stamp set and a piece of taffeta ribbon to decorate the box. Easy peasy and ready to fill.
