Candy Basket- Cindy Loo cartridge

Halloween Candy Basket by Jamie Cripps
When you see the Cindy Loo cartridge book you soon discover that this cartridge is full of surprises! It has an amazing alphabet and this cute little basket! I have put together a Cricut Design Studio file that you can grab HERE.
---
The cut file contains the basket, liner, and the "BOO".
If you are cutting these files manually, both bags are cut at 5 ¾” and the BOO letters are 1" regular. With the liner (orange bag cut), I trimmed off the side tab and the bottom of the basket. Adhere the liner to the basket, ensuring that the backs of the paper are touching and that the liner scallops are just above the basket scallops when they fold down.
Place adhesive on the basket tabs and fold up the basket. Ink around all the edges with Charcoal Cat's Eye Chalk Ink. Place a small foam piece at the bottom of the basket and poke holes for the candy to insert in to. Create a background for the letters or attach them as they are, add in Stickles to embellish the letters and fill the basket with 1/2" slices of accordion folded paper.
