I've read from someone'else craftblog earlier today...

"The basket is from the Easter cartridge (I think I will tempt you into buying this cartridge before the week is out!)."

LOL so  I decided to upload some of  my Springtime baskets...even having the Easter Cartridge here....LOL

My issue is...I refuse to consider myself some sort of  cartridges' prisoner...LOL...then I've made some cute baskets cutting files as a reaction....LOL. 
Hope you like it and have as much fun using them as I did tracing them on Inkscape.
The Springtime rose basket has two layers....and a SCORE&FOLD&GLUE GUIDE:
base layer: HERE
top layer: HERE
RED and PURPLE LINES...mountain folds
YELLOW areas.....where you put GLUE
I've traced a BASE layer....just in case you prefer to use a flower patterned paper in order to get some contrasting accent from the cut out parts.


  1. Hi Paulo - that's a great box! Where do you come up with all of your great creations? Thanks for being so generous and sharing them with us. =)

  2. paulo, this is great... btw. I have been trying to find the cartridge locally because that is the one I want... it has some cute animals and some really really cool shapes like the scalloped circles w/ the half circles in each scallop.
