SAMANTHA WALKER CREATIVE TEAM: JULY 2014 Blog Hop

Welcome to the July 2014 Blog Hop with the Samantha Walker Creative Team!!!
I'm so glad you're here.

Summer is in full gear and we are experimenting with different Summer recipes for drinks, desserts and treats at our house.    

 I'm using shapes #62208 (Circle Basket with Small Bow) and #35549 (Note Cards) to create a fun basket full of cards for jotting down the fun Summer recipes we'll want to try again. I've included some screen shots and notes.

  Cutting Pattern Part 1 

 I ended up leaving off the bow. I saved it for another project. Resize cards to fit your basket. I made my basket 125% of the original size, so I had to scale the cards down a bit.

Cutting Instructions Part 2

When I adhered the white panels, I only glued on three sides, so clippings and notes can be stuck behind the panels, too.

Summer Recipe Basket for Samantha Walker

Obviously, these cards could be used on a Rolodex, but I've just tucked them in the Circle Basket.
