Easy Easter Basket 2

For this project you will need:

- heavy scrapbook paper in color of choice
- corner squeeze (from Fiskars or other company)
- 2 brads matching paper
- ribbon matching paper
- ruler
- scissors
- double sided adhesive or wet glue (holds better)
- embossing tool
- glue to adhering ribbon
- decoration such as grass, eggs, birds, bunnies, chicks, candy, etc.


1. Cut your paper so that it measures 15 x 18 cm (approximately 6 inches x 7 inches). Also cut a separate handle which measures 3 x 15 cm (approximately 1.18 cm x 3 inches).
2. Round the 4 corners of the basket with the corner squeeze.

3. Now using the stylus and a ruler, make a 4 cm (approximately 1.6 inch) crease on all 4 sides and fold. On each corner you will now see a creased square. On your two long sides, cut into these creases until you come to the horizontal crease. (You are making a total of 4 cuts and each is 4 cm long.)
4. Punch a small hole in each end of the handle and place the handle across the basket. Mark the positions of the holes on to the basket and punch also where the markings are at. Attach the handles to the basket using the brads.
