Watermelon Basket for WATERMELON WEEK

Today's project is an adorable little watermelon basket!  I took the time to figure out how to bring it all together last night and I LOVE how it turned out! I think it would be so cute filled with pink and green JELLY BELLIES...when I go down the mountain I'm gonna grab some....

The colors I used are Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Almost Artichoke, So Saffron, Whisper White and Early Espresso!  I made a basic box 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored it in the landscape position at 1 1/2" and 4", turned it to the portrait position and scored it at 1 1/2" and 3".  The watermelon slices cover the box and were made using the three largest circles in the Circle framelit collection.  The flowers were made with the Boho Blossom Punch, the greenery was made with the Bird Builder Punch and the seeds were made with the heart on the Owl Builder Punch.




A close up of the flowers shows two watermelon blossoms and a sunflower!  I LOVE sunflowers and watermelons together so I just had to add one...it just SHOUTS SUMMER!









The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  I love how the Thick Bakers Twine frays!  I tied a little bow of Linen Thread to finish it off.  Those little details add a lot...but not to much!


DID YOU KNOW? 

         A watermelon is 92% water?
