How About a Picnic (basket)? And a winner!!! for Simply Crafty SVGs

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so that means I'm posting today for Simply Crafty SVGs.  I love Sandy's SVG files and I had great fun with today's picnic basket SVG file!

I used some bright, cheerful papers that I found in my stash.  They're from Close To My Heart (retired).   I gave this picnic basket to a friend with some chocolates inside and a gift certificate. It all fit inside nicely.  She was thrilled with how cute it was!

My first attempt, I used sticky backed card stock on the hinges, but it wasn't sticky enough to hold, so I re-cut the 4 hinges and the clasp out of regular card stock and used double sided tape to hold them on.  That did the trick!

(Here's a look at my first attempt -- hinges not holding, but it gives you a good view of the clasp on the lid).

This picnic basket went together very easily and was such a hit with the recipient.  I'll definitely be making this again!

The Simply Crafty SVGs design team had a blog hop over Memorial Day weekend, and as I promised, I'm announcing the winner of the $5 Gift certificate to the Simply Crafty SVGs store today.  The winner, chosen by from the comments on my blog on the hop is: Lisa Lynn.  Contact me, Lisa, and I'll get your gift certificate to you.  Congratulations!     

Make sure you check out the Simply Crafty SVGs store here.  There are lots of freebies available and all the files are very reasonably priced (plus, tutorials with many files!!)  Then, check out the Simply Crafty SVGs blog for inspiration on what the talented design team does with the wonderful files Sandy creates for her store
