DIY Easter baskets

11 Apr, 2017

With just a piece of cardstock and some glue, you can whip up these dainty Easter boxes just in time for the big day, perfect to stash chocolate eggs and lots of other goodies. These sturdy containers will come in handy for Easter egg hunts, or simply use decoratively to store your Easter treats.


1. Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 6 x 6''. Score three lines horizontally onto your cardstock, each 2'' apart, and then score vertically at 2'' so you end up with nine equal squares. On the middle row of squares, snip into the side edges at both ends.

2. Die cut the bunnies mini die onto the top and middle section of your basket template, and adhere a piece of acetate behind using Anita’s Tacky Glue. Fold the template inwards at both ends to create the basket shape, and fix the folds into place using double-sided tape.

3. Punch a hole in the front and back of the basket using a screw hole punch. To create the handle, trim a 14cm x 21cm strip of Kraftstax, and a slightly smaller piece of Elements Wood paper. Fix the wood-effect paper onto the Kraftstax, and attach to the basket with brads. Die cut ‘Happy Easter’ from Xcut pearlised adhesive sheets, as well as other Easter icons such as the filigree egg and bunnies die.
