Bestie Basket with Cricut!

Happy Tuesday! I'm so excited that it's finally spring! We have had an unusually wet winter here in Southern California so it has been nice having our sunshine back, especially in the evenings. Sam and I have been enjoying sitting in the yard with the dogs after a long day at work and just enjoying the lovely weather. Speaking of spring, I'm SO excited about today's post!

Growing up there was very little more exciting than receiving my Christmas stocking and my Easter basket. My grandma had such a special way of filling them with such fun little trinkets and goodies. It's been years, dare I say decades since I have received an Easter basket, but just because I'm slightly older than the average Easter basket receiver, doesn't mean I wouldn't like to get one! That is when I came up with the idea of a Bestie Basket!

I love any excuse to celebrate the ladies in my life and I don't think I'm alone in this, so I've created a shareable Cricut project on Cricut's Design Space so that you can create a Bestie Basket of your own!

I stopped at my local Target for my basket and all of the goodies I wanted to include.

I found the basket in everyone's weakness, the Target Dollar Spot for $3.
I also included:
-Hubba Bubba Bubble Tape (mostly because I loved the soft pink color, but also because it reminded me of my childhood)
-Altoids (also kind of for their color, not gunna lie)
-Sofia Champagne Can (because champagne makes everything better)
-Burt's Bee's Chapstick (this was something I was already planning on getting and then I saw it in this PERFECT shade of pink and was so happy!)
-Face Masks (my bestie is a lover of face masks, so these were a must)
Nail Polish (also in the perfect hue.) 

From there I created my labels using fonts, images and patterns from Cricut Access. 
Using sticker paper and my Cricut Explore Air 2, I was able to create a very adorable, cohesive look. 
 (For the nail polish tag and the basket tag, I used cardstock instead of sticker paper. In the file, I put both of those tags on the right hand side, to make them easy to tell the difference. I simply "hid" the tags I didn't want when cutting the ones I did. Let me know if you have any question about this, I'd be more than happy to do a video on it.)
 I'm SO happy with how it turned out and all the colors ended up so cute together! I ended up adding an extra tassel of my own to the basket, it had a light blue and a turquoise one but it needed a pink one. I think it ready tied it all together, what do you think?
I hope my bestie loves her basket as much as I do! If you make a basket of your own I'd LOVE to see it!
