Before starting, i separated the basket section from the balloon section to make it easier to work with.
"Chalk ink" pad (gingerbread).
Next I cut slits in the sides of the balloon and slotted the large gold wings in to place. These are super huge and wonderfully detailed; pretty sturdy too considering they are a type of metallic paper/ card....
I used a piece of german scrap trim to decorate the edges and the top of the balloon and then set to work on the basket section. I covered it with more papers (i did it in three sections due to the shape being wider at the top than the bottom). I sanded and inked it in the same way as I did the top and then added more dresden trim.
I cut out Alice and her friends from a sheet of the paper and glued them to the inside and then cut up a paper doily to decorate the inside of the basket. I stained the doily to blend better with the yellowed paper look of the scrapbook papers.
I also added some strips of decorative border (cut from the papers) and attached them using the glue on the edges only. this way i could slip little bits of ephemera in to them. lastly i added some "alice" themed charms for a nice vintage curio feel. the flag at the top is also from the ephemera pack.
