Holiday Peppermint Patty Basket!

This little basket holds 3 scallop punch covered peppermint patties. The original pattern can be found HERE, but I've recreated a new sample picture for this post, to use current stamp sets with current In Colors and Designer Series Paper.

I used the Deer Friends Hostess Stamp Set for the images layered on top of the patties, because the images are round and solid, much like the ones used in the original tutorial. However, if you're going to use the Punch Pals set to make the tag, you may choose to use some of the images from that set on your patties. Remember, you can stamp your image, color it, then slide your punch upside down over the edge of your image, and choose what you want to have showing in your punched circle! Popular choices are the snowman's head, and the penguin's head.

These make cute little gifts for the office, for school classrooms and teachers, or as place setting favors for holiday parties. You can stack 3 patties in each basket, either on their sides, or one on top of the next, as shown below:

Stampin' Supplies: Deer Friends (Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set - FREE), Punch Pals stamp set, Ski Slope Designer Series Paper, Baja Breeze card stock and ink, Riding Hood Red card stock and ink, Kiwi Kiss ink, Chocolate Chip ink, Whisper White card stock, Small and Large Tag Punches, 1/16" hole punch (for brads and tag), Earth Elements Brads (Ruby Red), Scallop Circle Punch, 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" Circle Punches, Linen Thread. And of course, you'll need some Peppermint Patties, in your favorite brand!
