Dimensions for my Picnic Basket

Wow!!  Two posts in one day!!

I was asked for the dimensions I used to make this project.  Please see the post here at "Picnic Basket full of Cards"

So, here it goes.  I think maybe next time I make it I will make the basket deeper, but this was an awesome size for a couple of handmade cards!  Please note that the dimensions are for the cardstock only.  The papers were just cut 1/8" smaller on all sides to fit.

Handle: 1 x 11 1/2"
Brace for the Lid:  1 x 7",   scored at 1" on each end
Basket:  7 x 9",  scored at 1" on all sides, then cut the tabs to create the box
Bottom: 5 1/4 x 7 1/4"
Top: 5 x 9", scored at 1", 4", 5", and 8"

I hope this helps, and THANK YOU for asking!!!

This basket is so cute! Ironically, great minds must really think alike because I was planning on doing one too! LOL! Great job!
