I was in Anthropologie this weekend and saw these wooden cutouts by Lovi, they had the bird and the pig (which I got). Online you can find hearts, eggs, trees and even reindeer! They are all so impossibly cute and lifelike which is saying a lot considering they are made from single sheets of wood.

My love for Style Me Pretty and Elum are both well documented, so when I found out that Elum made business cards for SMP, my heart skipped a beat! These absolutely gorgeous pieces look like they were pressed into clouds. Now all I need to do is to convince her to send me one 😉

Download the Shortcake Basket Template and print onto a card stock with a color printer. Tape shut with double-sided tape and line with parchment paper. Sha-BAMM! Hope you like them!
