Welcome to the newest template design by Creations by AR called the Lovely Cart. For my design, I chose Bo Bunny's Love Letters papers.
As always, Adela's templates fit together beautifully and since I cut everything by hand, I am confident my project will be precise and accurate.
Once the cart was fully together, the real fun begins for me with decorating! Of course, I have to change up some things here and there and I began by making the wheels out of rosettes. Four punched hearts were added and finished with a button.
The next embellishment was to add a little something on the roof. I hot glued a toothpick into a tiny hole I made in the roof with my piercing tool. Then all I did was add the bracket banner, flowers and diecut bird (A Muse Studio)
On the other side of the banner I added little postoids and more flowers.
I wanted the sides of the cart to be a little deeper (thinking I had Hershey kisses in the house) to accommodate the candy, but I didn't have any left from my holiday baking. I cut a 1-1/4x12 inch strip and border punched one side. I added Scor Tape to the top inside edge of the cart and just proceeded to wrap the scallop edge all around.
The cart handle needed a little something so I added a double bow of seam binding (Hug Snug), tulle, a Prima flower and two heart pins from my stash.
