Watch Us Wednesday - Re-Run Easter Basket Tutorial!

With Easter just around the corner we thought this great tutorial was well worth the re-run!
Below is a fun Easter Basket tutorial from a past Kraft Outlet Designer Aphra Boyler. 


Step One: Cut a sheet of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock into a 9" square. Then, score the sheet every three inches, so you end up with a grid of nine 3" squares.


Step Two: Cut 3" slits on two opposing sides of the square.


Step Three: Cut a 2" x 11" strip of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and punch the edges with your favorite border punch.


Step Four: Attach the handle as shown below.





Step Five: At this point, I added a strip of Robin's Egg Blue 7 Gypsies Decorative Tape to my handle. Fold the basket sides upward and attach to the handle as shown below.




Step Six: Embellish the basket and fill with treats.




I used my Cricut and the Create A Critter cartridge to cut this cute little hatching chick from Echo Park's Life Is Good papers. Then, I added buttons tied with Brown Baker's Twine.




And for the top of the handle, I added a couple of flowers (cut with the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge also), a seam binding bow, some more Baker's Twine, a button, and an X-small Grungy Prim Tag.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to everyone!
