An adorable basket for Easter/Spring

Quick, Cheap and Cheerful is what we like for craft projects-here is another whimsical project from Monique-changing the digi, colours and papers certainly makes this a project for all SEASONS!!!

Quick and easy to make, in five minutes you will have a cute paper basket you can fill with chocolate or little gifts.
All you need is a square piece of paper (I used double sided printed paper), scissors, glue a ruler and a pencil.
For the small basket I used a 6" piece of paper and for the big basket a 12" piece of paper.
How to
With a pencil and ruler draw an evenly spaced 3 x 3 grid onto the paper.
for the 6" piece of paper draw the lines 2" apart.


Fold and unfold along each of the lines to make a crease


make cuts like in the pic below


fold up the left and the right side of the paper to turn it into a basket
and glue the sides see pics below







use a strip of paper to make a handle and glue it on the basket.
I also put some brads through

I atached a Rick St. Dennis digi, Larry Lapin






and filled the baskets with chocolate eggs
