Easter Basket

I demonstrated this cute basket at my workshop last week and gave it to my hostess.


To make this basket, score a 6" x 6" piece of designer series paper at 2" on all four sides. Cut along score lines to the next score line on opposite sides as shown below.





Fold sides up and adhere with little Snail adhesive. To make the handle, border punch a 1 1/4" x 11" strip of cardstock on both sides. Using the 1/16th inch hole punch, punch a hole at both ends of the handle and on both sides of the basket. Line up the holes and insert Rhinestone brads.

You may also want to strengthen the sides with a few mini glue dots if you are planning to put candy in the basket. Make a larger basket by using a 12" x 12" sheet of designer series paper and score at 4" on all four sides.
