I started off by cutting my TC paper into 2- 6"x12" pieces.

Then I used my basket die and cut both sheets at the same time by running it through my Cit'n'boss machine. To use steel rule dies in my Cut'n'boss I used the following sandwich combination:


I folded both panels on the creases.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to add adhesive to the front of one panel.

I took the remaining panel and place it over the adhesive, being very careful to line the up with one another. 

I gathered the flap on one side so that the hole lined up with the next. I inserted a brad through the holes. Then inserted the brad through the hole in the handle panel and attached the handle to the basket. I repeated this process to the other side. 

Please note that this basket calls for the use of one handle... but since I had to cut the panel twice it also cut out 2 handles. As a result, I decided to go ahead and use them both.

I used my scissors to cut out a card from the Teresa Collins "Cards" paper. Then used my Marvy Uchida Mega Scallop Circle Punch to cut out the pattern in the center.

 I used the small flower and leaf stem does from the Teresa Collins "Thankful " set to cut 2 leaves and four flowers.

I stacked my flowers together and using my Crop-A-Dile I punched a hole down the center. Then inserted a brad and fastened them together. Next, I bent all the petals upward to for more dimension. I also added foam adhesive under the flower to raise it up.

Then, I quickly ran my die cut leaves through my Xyron "X"...

 then peeled and stuck them to my scalloped circle. Once the leaves were attached I peeled the backing of the foam adhesive of the flower I attached my flower.

Then I stamped my sentiment using Pink and Main's "Squeakheart" stamp set using Onyx Black Versafine ink.

Finally, I punched a hole up top, turning my scalloped circle into a tag and attached it to my basket using hemp twine. Then, filled it with paper shreds, and topped it off with lollipops.

And here is my finished treat box...
