I’ve had a few people ask how to create the basket from the Doohickey Vol 2 kit so here you go:

Firstly die cut and emboss all the pieces and fold along the score lines, ink the edges with SU Sahara Sand for a more vintage look:

The thin pieces fold up to form the sides,  attach the sides at the tabs with glue (you could also add tiny brads if you like)

Do this on all 4 to create the basket shape

Attach the handle by matching up the 2 holes in each side of the basket with the holes on the handle, you can do this with glue or tiny brads

Add one or more of the tiny tags, I’ve used the tag shape and attached it with twine but you could use a tiny brad if you like

Decorate as desired, I added some flowers and a butterfly

And added it to my Christmas gift bag:
