    Greeting Card Baskets/Boxes

    This board is dedicated to my mother-in-law, who, some twenty-five years ago, gifted me with the most charming greeting card basket crafted by her very own hands. It was something I treasured and used every holiday season...until...movers smashed the precious thing beyond recognition! I only hope the ones I can now create are as sweet as those Delores patiently stitched up! Try making one yourself...you'll be glad you did!

      Sally...The instructions available (if there are any) for each photo come with that particular photo..click on this photo, there is a link leading to a pattern.

      Sadly, the pattern given appears to be a different size. I would count the number of holes along the side of the pattern, count the number of holes along the side of THIS basket, and adjust accordingly. I think this just might work.

      The pattern and tutorial given on the "Serendipity" blog post 1/6/09 is fairly close to this basket and her instructions are very good!

      That is so cute. And if you put a little handle on the "heel," you could hang this from the tree and fill it with a little holly or pine, or put a little gift in it.

    all I can say is "WOW!"

      Jan, Do you have instructions how to gloss and crochet the vintage cards? Let me know.

      Robin...the only instructions I've been able to find have been pinned to this board...very frustrating trying to find the kind of "join" my MIL used and she doesn't do this anymore. As for glossing the cards...one doesn't have to do that, but if you prefer to I would suggest Mod Podge or a similar decoupage medium!

      My late mother used to make vintage christmas card basket and she crocheted with real thin thread (red) and I wish she could give me instructions. She did hers very perfect and it was like antiqued glossy. That was during the 70's and her basket was stolen from the attic while my father was alive that time. I was just searching. Thank you for information.

    VERY good instructions...however, I was unable to retrieve the pattern download supposedly made available.
