Christmas Basket & Treat boxes

I have wanted to make a woven basket for some time and found some lovely Imaginise Christmas papers to complete my project.  So much fun.  I have a 'quicker' version to make up as well, but was happy with how the basket came together (after only one or two early hiccouphs)

This is the end result:

and the last one:

Am trying different coloured back drops to try and complement my projects.  Have to figure out how to use my light box properly - can anyone help with a good tutorial?

This is how it all came together:
