Easter Basket

014 Hi its Jacqui here and its my turn to try to pass on some inspiration. This is a tutorial for a very simple but effective Easter Basket, it would also make a lovely basket for Mothers Day.

003 First you need to assemble what you need for the basket,

I piece of Card 6” x 6”

I piece of card 2 “ x 8”

8 pieces matching Backing Paper 1.7/8” square

An Edge Punch

Glue, 2 Brads, Whiff of Joy image of your choice

004 Score the piece of 6” sq card 2” in from each of the four sides, cut along the solid lines and crease along the dotted lines

006 You should end up with your card as above.

007 Attach the 8 x 1.7/8” square to the scored and cut card as above.

009 Bring up two of the cut squares crossing the middle square, place one end of the handle (which I have punched with MS Border Punch), behind the square and attach both sides square and handle with a Brad.

010 This is how it should look on the inside of the basket.

011 Now repeat the process on the other side, and you have your finished basket.

012 Finish your basket off with as much or as little embellishments as you like, I have used the Tulip stamp from Whiff of Joy Spring Store Kit, with ribbon and pearls, (I have decorated both sides of the basket the same), then fill with lots of yummy Eggs.

Hope you found this easy to follow and I would love to see your baskets if you decide to make one.
