Back To School Basket Banners With Cottage Cutz Dies

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Today I am sharing a fun project...err should I say projects created with some fun dies from Cottage Cutz. Here is what I created.
I created these fun gift baskets and used some dies to create the little banners on each one. It is kind of hard to see them here in this group photo. I wanted to share the whole finished set first. 

Here's a photo of one of the gift baskets before I put the cello wrap and bow, etc. on it. I got these baskets from Hobby Lobby on clearance! I had to make 4 baskets for a teacher appreciation event our Chamber of Commerce is hosting next week. I filled the baskets with items that a teacher can use. I decided to decorate the baskets with these cute hanging banners. I strug the 4 banner panels along some jute and then used some wood beads inbetween each panel.

Here's a look at the #1 banner. I used Kraft cardstock to cut out the double stitched rectangle mats from that set. I then cut some black cardstock to create some mats. I used some foam tape between the two Kraft layers to give it a little more dimension. The Award cup and #1 are from a die as well.

Here's a closer look at the puppy with apple and star banner.

Here's a closer look at the folk art fox die on a banner.

And last but not least, here is a close up of the All star banner. 

Heres a closer look at one of the baskets once the cello wrap was on.

Here's a closer look at the one basket that is a rectangle basket. I was only able to find one rectangle so the other three were in the baskets.
