The Bo Bunny paper made this project so much fun to do. You can purchase the 12 X 12 sheets and a 6 X 6 pad. I like seeing the large scale versus the smaller scale in a design. They also did some cute embellishments, I used a few of the sparkles on the stars and banners.

  1. Assemble picnic basket. (Watch Mary's video if you have any questions). Assemble the rosette and glue scallop, then attach star with a pop dot and glue to the basket as shown in photo. Glue banner as described in design tips. Then assemble the pennants (center.svg) and stars and attach with pop dots.
  2. Assemble Box Card. Choose 2 of the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Box Card, size to 2.25" each. Use pop dots to attach as shown in photo. Glue the assembled banner to the rear of the card, then the 2 side banners. Assemble the happy 4th and attach to the front flap with pop dots.

Design Tips

Kathy Helton - SVGCuts Designer

  • The star banner on the picnic basket looks great when you glue the smaller side under the rosette and let it dry. Then glue the end of the banner to the opposite side and to give it dimension glue it so that there is a slight (raised) bow. Make sure the weaved paper contrasts with the star banner.
  • I used striped paper for the rosette. It looks so much better than the first one I tried that was not striped.
  • Use lots of pop dots to make things stand out.

There is plenty of time to make this for the 4th of July. Take it as a hostess gift. They will love it !!! You will definitely get invited back next year!
