“Bountiful Basket” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Dillie of Dillie’s Designs and can be purchased from Lollipops n Gumdrops.  You can visit her blog here.

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~~ Lets get started ~~

I spent hours making this tag using Tracy’s Easter Template 6 here.  When I began to write this tutorial I realized the link to it was no longer valid.  I have tried to get in contact with her several times in the last few weeks about the template links here and there no longer being valid and have had no luck at a response.  So until I hear from her this will be the last tutorial I use her templates on.  Since it goes against her TOU to upload them to share I have written this tutorial so that you can create the template on your own.  I want to be sure you understand that the shapes and placement of the shapes you create IS NOT OF MY CREATION.  Tracy gets all the credit for that.  Keep your fingers crossed I hear from her as I just love her templates!!
