Small Easter Basket

Need a cute Easter basket idea that is quick and easy? Here it is. You can make this little Easter basket in no time!
First you will need cardstock for the bottom 4 3/4 x 7 3/4 - score 1 1/2 on all 4 sides. Put adhesive on the outside tabs. Then fold into the box to form the base.

cardstock - handle 1 x 11

b&t (patterned paper)- handle 3/4 x 11

Adhere the b&t to the handle

b&t - 1 1/4 x 8 3/4 and 1 1/4 x 4 3/4

Take the larger piece and wrap around the box making sure the edges start and finish in the back. Then the smaller piece will cover over the space in the back to make it look complete. Make sure the larger piece starts and finishes in the back.

14 inches of ribbon - take the ribbon and wrap around box. Embellish as you like.

Attach the handle on the inside with adhesive and then add brads for extra strength. Then add some Easter grass, jelly beans and of course a chocolate bunny.

I think these baskets will make great May Day baskets, picnic baskets (that would be a cute placeholder for the picnic), Halloween or any other time you would need a little basket. Great for teachers and co-workers.

Enjoy making these baskets!
