Need A Quick and Easy Little Easter Basket?
I had a lot of fun making some of these cute little Easter Baskets for a Craft Fair this past week. They are very easy to make. I've posted a quick" how to" in this post, just incase you want to make one.
Start with a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock, score at 2" and 4" down and across. This gives you (9) 2" squares. Cut down at the 2" and 4" to the cross score. Also cut up at the 2" and 4" to the cross score.
Trim each outside corner at an angle as shown in picture. Cut (6) 1 3/4" squares of DSP and add the first 4 as shown. Trimming corners of corner pieces 1st. Cut a 1" by 8 1/2" piece of cardstock and punch the edges with the Scallop Trim Border punch. Add a 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of DSP to it.
Next fold up your sides over lapping them as shown. Staple the handle to the back of the two side pieces being careful not to staple the middle piece up.
Then glue the middle piece in place to hide the staple. Sticky Strip can also be used instead of the staples I just preferred to use my stapler.
As you can see it then hides the staples and holds together very well. Add your other 2 side pieces at this time.
