Bread Anyone?

I baked all day, no not really but I did play. How do you like my coaster basket. The basket takes 8 coasters. I saw a tutorial over on Korin's blog for a dual coaster basket and it sparked an idea.

I changed several things. I was going for a more elegant basket so I chose to tag the middle using 1" double stick beading tape. I chose that due to the extreme tackiness of it. Instead of cutting the paper in 4" squares I did a continueous 8" piece. The project only took a single sheet of 12X12 paper. For the scallop on the long edges I cheated and traced the lip of an 8" envelope which worked out perfectly . I then used some cheap scallop scissors to finish it off. Also, I don't own a Crop-Dile and since no one is giving them away as blog candy I improvised by using a regular old standard paper punch. I am thrilled at how it turned out. Would this look pretty on a Holiday table?

This is fabulous! What a great idea! I will tell Lisa (the guest designer who did the tutorial) to check it out. I think she'll be thrilled to see it in a new way! TFS!!
