Beautiful, Giftable Easter Baskets

Easter is the perfect opportunity for giving small, hand-crafted presents.

1

These small baskets are a great Easter gift, and can be easily made with the Basket Builder Framelits Dies (item 143228).

2

Instructions

You need 2 strips of cardstock for the baskets, sized 13.5 x 5.5 cm.

Score them at 4 cm and 9.5 cm.

3

The grass is die cut with the Framelits, but the cuts don’t go all the way through to the end of the cardstock. For this, let the bottom edge of the Framelits hang just over the edge of the cutting plate of the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (item 143263).

4

Once you’ve die cut both strips, the baskets can be assembled.

5

The blades of grass can be carefully intertwined . . .

6

. . . so that you don’t necessarily have to glue the basket together at the sides.

Unless you want to put in lots of chocolate. ;)

Now you can decorate the baskets, for example with small eggs (Basket Builder Framelits Dies; item 143228), butterflies (Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies; item 142755), ribbons (3/8" [1 cm] Ruched Ribbon in Flirty Flamingo, item 141426; Peekaboo Peach, item 141427; Sweet Sugarplum, item 141428),

and a sentiment (Time of Year Stamp Set, item 141790, and Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies, item 141488).

And you can fill them, too. A few chocolate eggs and a little lamb found their way into my baskets.

Wishing you lots of fun with this project!
