This teeny, tiny Easter basket is the perfect gift to give a friend or co-worker this season. It can hold some of their favorite candies or a special little gift. Change the colors and make ones that any guy will love. He or she will be surprised to receive it!
Begin by cutting a 5” x 5” inch piece of card stock. Here I chose a pink card stock to match the patterned paper.
Score the paper at 1 ½” on every side using a scoring board (Martha Stewart Scoring Board used here).
Adhere a piece of patterned paper (Sugar & Spice Paper Pad by Doodlebug Design, Inc. used) that measures 2” x 1 ½” onto the center pieces of the box. Make sure that your pattern is going the correct way when adhering to the box. The top should be towards the edges of the pink card stock.
Cut a piece of pink card stock that measures ½” wide by 7” long and lay aside for a moment.
Add tape onto the top and bottom of the left hand corners only as shown in the picture above.
Fold the box up and adhere all but the 2 longest outside pieces. Add some tape to both sides of the handle on one end and adhere to the box. Close that flap up so that it sticks to the handles.
Add some more tape to both sides of the other end of the handle and curve it over to meet the opposite side of the box as shown in the picture. Fold the flap up so that it sticks.
Now it’s time to share your Easter basket and the joy of giving with someone special. Have even more fun and decorate them with your own designs. Add a stamped image in the circle or create a star using a star punch. Have fun creating and giving this cute little basket!
