Easter Basket

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Friday and today being Good Friday, also means Happy Easter!

So to celebrate, I have some cute little Easter baskets to show you.

I did share these with you in an Easter Blog Hop a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t share any instructions at the time on how to make them.

So here are some cute little baskets that my girls gave to their teachers on the last day of Term for Easter. I used the Designer Series Papers, because they are double sided and they are so pretty.

These are only small. Add small strips of cellophane inside then add 3 little solid eggs. The girls loved giving these to their teachers.

What you need:

4 strips DSP: 5-1/2″ x 3/4″ (basket)

1 strip DSP: 5-1/2″ x 1/2″ (handle)

1 strip DSP 7-1/4″ x 1/2″ (top)

1 x 1-3/4″ circle punched (base)

Step 1 – Add Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse to the “Top” (longest length) as shown below.

Step 2 – Start adding the strips for the basket, starting at one end and lining them up against each other.

Step 3 – take the first strip and fold it around next to the fourth strip (see below)

Step 4 – Repeat with the remaining strips and join the top together.

Step 6 – Push down gently from the top to squash it a little and add the circle punch to the bottom.

Step 7 – Add the handle with some brads and fill with your favourite mini eggs!

I hope you enjoy making some of these Easter Baskets yourself.

Happy Easter,
