An Easter Basket Tutorial


Today I have a little Easter basket tutorial to share. It is a fun basket to make and can be decorated in so many ways!

The paper is a 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" - scored at 2", 4", 6" and 8" across the paper. Turn and score at 2". Fold on all the score lines and trim as shown in the photo.

Assemble as follows. Enjoy!

The handle is a 1/2" strip cut to the length you want.

And there you have it - a cute little basket! I also cut strips and rounded the corners to fold over the top of the four sides of the basket after I decorated the sides.

The CS I used is SU Summer Sun - sponged on all of the edges of the basket and handle with SU Pumpkin Pie ink - and the designer paper I used is by TPC Studio - love these matching papers! The ribbon I had in my stash and the Easter eggs are malted milk balls.

Aren't these chicks the best! :<) You will be seeing them again this week!

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I will have more variations of this little basket to share - two finished sizes using the same pattern. :<)

Wishing you a great Monday! We have lots of sunshine and warmer weather in WI! Love it!
