Something Old - Something New Easter Basket Template

Yes -  I did title this post Easter Basket Template -  because that is the name of Adela's template I'm using today for my turn at the SOSN Wednesday post - to use an old template and make something new!
  and I made it new by using it as a basket for gifting 4 single Keurig Coffees or Teas!  The insert's original purpose was to hold  Easter Eggs.
 I made two baskets -  a Get Well Basket filled with different teas and a Wishing You A Happy Birthday Basket containing 4 Cafe Caramel Coffees - Yum!!  I also made bows to place at the base of each side of the handles using  the recently released It's Bow Easy template.  I just LOVE these bows!
I used a teacup die for the sentiment on the Tea Basket -  attaching it with the brad that holds on the handle.
 And I used a coffee mug die for the sentiment on the Coffee Basket
So there you have it!  A new way to look at the Easter Basket Template
So - do you like my Easter Basket re-do??!  Wouldn't these be great to give to friends - or, with a different sentiment, to welcome a new neighbor into the neighborhood??  And if they don't have a Keurig coffee maker - you could fit some tiny muffins inside the circles - or just remove the inner tray and fill the basket with goodies!

These baskets are fabulous Julia, I love that fancy bow shape too! The papers are very retro, I think my bedroom wallpaper back in the 70's was very similar!
