A birthday tote

Today the kids are home from school...we got sooo much rain last night that the flooding was insane. School is canceled and the kids get a freebie! Shawn and I woke up about 3:45 to look outside cuz the thunder and hail was so loud. The water was half way up our yard. It's all gone now but some people in the Houston area weren't so lucky and they are dealing with much worse!
Here is a birthday tote I made to show my stamp club girls. I was really excited when I saw this idea...I have hardly used my basket die cut. I was glad for a reason to try something new with it! I love this birthday paper...I am almost out, I don't know what I will do when it's gone! {sniff, sniff} Here is a link to the tutorial I found for these totes. I backed my dsp with cardstock so it would be sturdier. I didn't have a chance to fill this up yet...but I will when I decide who it's going to.
Have a great and hopefully dry day! ;)
