MAKE AN EASTER BASKET IN LESS THAN 3 MINUTES !


Hi Everyone,
I thought I would just share how quick & easy it is to make a little Easter Gift Basket using my Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter.
It literally took less than 3 minutes to make this cute little basket with hardly any effort on my part, just by using the Silhouette Digital Cutter & I didnt even need any glue to assemble the basket after it was cut out.
Not only did it cut out all the intricate details in no time, it even cuts the score lines & tabs to put it together.
How easy is that?
Just imagine making this using a template & having to cut all the detail by hand !
Imagine having to make 30 of these for your child's classmates !
You could have them done in no time with the Silhouette.
If you are considering purchasing a  digital cutter, these are such a great machine with thousands of fabulous designs that can be downloaded from Silhouette's website for just 99 cents (US) each.
