Altered Picnic Basket

I was blog-surfing yesterday and came across a beautiful site: I was so inspired that I had a try at making this pretty little basket. Now my question is what to put in it. Perhaps it will be a place to store ephemera, since it has that look to it. I recycled cardboard as the base, painted it in white acrylic, and since I was going for the shabby-chic look, I dried it with my heat gun. This worked out perfectly and really cut down on time. All the paper is Heidi Grace, and the embellies are assorted. The butterfly is from K& Co. I also used stickles and inked the edges to give it a mossy look. I'd love to know what you think!
