Basket of Crafts Galore!

My son's school held a fundraiser last month.  I volunteered to put together the raffle basket for my son's class.  Can you guess what theme I went with???  CRAFTS!  The whole class contributed to the basket and it was a general craft theme, so it included all sorts of fun items from various local craft stores, along with lots of Stampin' Up! products (of course!).  It was worth over $500! 
As you an see, I went with a taken with teal & chocolate chip color theme!  So, I dug through my retired paper stash and put together a cool banner.  Check it out:
I used the Broadsheet Alphabet stamp set to spell CREATE.  The base of the banner was made using the same technique as the magnetic bookmark in my last post.  Only, I made them much shorter by sliding the folded edge down a bit before running the Two Tags Die thru the Big Shot.  To get the long tail of the R to fit on the 1 3/8" circle, I cut it out and glued it onto the circle afterwards.  It's hard to see in this picture, but there are Basic Rhinestones stretigically placed on each letter to add some more bling to the basket.  

I was so happy with how the basket turned out that I even bought some tickets and tried to win it back!  But it wasn't my lucky night.  You should have seen how excited the woman who did win it was... WOW!  That made all the "strenuous" hours I spent shopping, crafting and putting it together totally worth it!
