Tuesday Tutorial: Guest Post - May Day Basket

Today please welcome super talented Joanne from Ready, Set, Craft!. She is sharing a super cute tutorial on how to make a basket completely out of paper! This is such a fun a simple basket to make and would be great to give as a gift basket with fun little goodies in it. Think: Mother's Day :)
Hi there! I'm Joanne from Ready, Set, Craft! and I'm super happy to be here guest posting at The Creative Place today! Ashley creates and shares some absolutely beautiful projects here, and I just love stopping in to read what she's up to and get inspired myself!

I don't know about you, but I'm 100% ready for Springtime. The daffodils and tulips are blooming where I am, showing promise of warmer weather to come! Today I'm sharing with you my tutorial to create a lovely little May Day basket to fill with treasures and pretties in celebration of Spring.
Here's what you'll need:
- One 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper
- One 81/2x11 sheet of contrasting colored cardstock
- Monoadhesive
- Embellishments

And here's how to make it:
Thanks for having me today - and Happy Spring to you all!
