Directions for Pennant Basket

I was asked if I would post the directions for the Pennant Basket found on this post.

I do have to however give credit where credit is due. Thank you to Annie Coffman for creating this beautiful basket.

You'll need:

Big Shot
Pennant Bigz XL die
Scallop circle die
Adhesive - preferably sticky strip
Paper snips

1.) Cut DSP for side of basket in 6 x 8" rectangle
2.) Fold in half to form a 6 x 4" rectangle
3.) Lay folded edge along non-cutting edge of small Pennant die image
4.) Run through Big shot
5.) Repear to form a second side
6.) While still folded, use scissors to snop image at bottom corner to free triangle from rest of DSP
7.) While still folded, use snips or Curly Label punch to snip off top point of triangle.
8.) Open folded triangle pennants
9.) You will see the perforated edge of the pennant. Snip along this bottom edge of the pennant so sides can be easily bent into half circles.
10.) Use double sided tape to overlap and adhere bottom points of triangle pennants
11.) Cut large Scallop circle using Bigshot
12.) Adhere assembled sides to Scallop circle bottom
13.) Attach strip of DSP to form handle
14.) Embellish with tag of choice and ribbon.

Have fun making this, I know I did. I would love to see your creations!
