  2. Wow - this is amazing! I actually think your version is much cuter!

  3. What an easy springtime idea. Thanks for sharing over at Tip Junkie!

  4. Can I tell you something? I think yours looks better than PB! :)

  5. Very cute! You did a great job on that basket!

  6. Totally agree yours is way better!

  8. It turned out great... and I love your honesty... hot glue guns! Sure have been there! Would you be able to use a low temp glue on this too? I haven't tried that product yet.
