Cut 3 Pink Pirouette cardstock scallops with your Big Shot with the BigZ Die Large Scallop.
Cut 1 vellum scallop with your Big Shot using the BigZ Die Large Scallop.
Cut one smaller scallop #2 die (the smaller of the 2 on the die.) from Riding Hood Red.

To make the embellishment:
Stamp scallop stamp from Love You Much stamp set 3 times on Whisper White.

1. Color scallop edge on one with blender pen and Ruby Red from in ink pad lid. (Squeeze your ink pad together while closed to get ink on lid. Use this with blender pen for softer color.) Color ring with Ruby Red marker. Color heart on a different stamped image with Ruby Red.

2. Punch out image with colored scallop edge with scallop punch. Use 2 way glue to place Dazzling Diamonds on dots in outer scallop.Layer on #2 Riding Hood Red scallop.

3. From 3rd image punch out center circle with 1” circle punch. Layer on scallop image with demensionals.

4. Punch out colored heart with ¾” circle punch. Sponge edges with Riding Hood Red. Layer heart on center circle with demensionals.

5. Attach 2 - 1 ½“ pieces of Riding Hood Red Taffeta behind largest Riding Hood Red scallop.
See top photo.

Basket body:

1. Score 2 of the large pink scallops at center 2 1/4"- Fold in half.
Lay between 2" and 6 1/2" on Scorepal. You don't have one?
You have to get one, they are fantastic!

2. I cut the inside of the handle using larger scallop on scallop #2.
It could be cut as a round curve with Coluzzle.
3. Attach back flaps together. Attach handle to top of back flaps.
Stamp hearts with Riding Hood Red all over for background.
See top photo.
5. Tape vellum circle inside heart basket. I got several from a 4 1/4" x 11 piece. You can see the bottom is missing a few scallops. It's okay no one but you sees them.
Fold front flaps over. Attach where they overlap.

Attach embellishment to front flap. tie ribbon around handle.

Fill with shredded paper and treats or treats in a bag with a tag.
