I saw this idea on splitcoaststampers and had to give it a try! Sahara Sand card stock makes an old mummy and sponging Sahara Sand ink on the edges makes it even older! Make 3 Pillow Box cuts with the Pillow Box die and the Big Shot. Sponge around all edges. Cut the top so all edges look the same and remove all the tabs from the bottom side. Place Sticky Strip on the long tab and connect the 3 "boxes" together. Make 3 - 5" x 1" strips and adhere 1/4" from the bottom with Sticky Strip. Cut 2 - 4" circles and Sticky Strip them on the top and bottom of the support strips to create a nice finish. Tear strips from the Sahara Sand card stock and sponge the edges then Sticky Strip the end pieces only to the basket. For his eyes I used Bravo Burgundy and the 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Sahara Sand with the 1" Circle punch then I slide these across with Bravo Burgundy ink to make them bloodshot and finally in Basic Black punch with 1/2" Circle Punch. SNAIL these together and adhere where you like them. Punch slits on the sides with Horizontal Slots Punch. It has to be ounched then scooted over a bit and punched again to make a nice opening for the 11" x 3/4" handle. Slide the handle through the slots then bend and secure with large eyelets or brads. Place a nice ribbon like the 1 1/4" Stripe Grosgrain in black, fill with candy and VOILA! A yummy mummy!
