Hi Everyone! This cute little Easter basket is made from a 7 3/4" x 4 3/4" piece of card stock. Perfect for a little gift or easter treat. Shown above using one of our punched bunnies (see earlier post or video) and paper from the Sweet Pea designer paper set 117161. The other uses our Rich Razzleberry cardsstock 115316 and polka dot ribbon115613 along with the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set 111564, Butterfly punch116629 and Scallop Punch (FREE in Sale-a-bration catlog through the end of March 2010.)

Score cardstock at 1 1/2" each side
Cut the cardstock at the two score lines on either side of the long length of cardstock - see video for details. Using Sticky Strip, fold in corners and adhere strips
Fold inward to make box corners.

Decorate outside of your box, You will need 15" of either paper or ribbon to go around box, For the bunny basket, I used patterned designer paper cardstock. Worked great!To make handle: Cut
1 strip 1" x 11" cardstock
1 strip 7/8" x 11 cardstock OR 1" x 11" and using a border punch of your choice – border each side. See butterfly basket above. (Optional – adhere smaller width strip to larger. May not need to as brad secures.)

Punch a hole with your crop-a-dile on either side of your box (I used the 1/2 stop setting) and also on your handle. Use a large brad to attach handle to both sides of basket. Click here to see video. See 24/7 order link above if you'd like to order anything!
