  1. Create: freezer paper stencils: Position the freezer paper wax side down over the name template on the self-healing mat. Use a utility knife to cut out the letters. Using the circle punch, punch circles from the freezer paper.
  2. Using a dry hot iron, iron the freezer paper stencils to the fabric in your desired position. (they should be wax side down). Paint inside the stencils. We used berry wine for the letters and a mixture of orange and white for the polka dots. Once the paint is dry, lift the freezer paper.
  3. Dip the eraser end of a pencil into the rose paint and press into the fabric to create mini polka dots. Repeat with the vintage orange color.
  4. Hot glue Easter embellishments to the front of the basket.
