Teeny, Tiny Easter Basket at ThinkCrafts.com

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!

5 x 5 cardstock

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).

Cut Score Lines

Using a pair of scissors or your paper trimmer, cut the score line of each corner up to, but not over the vertical score line.

Adhere Paper

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 Strip

Cut a piece of pink card stock that measures ½” wide by 7” long and lay aside for a moment.

Tape bottom

Add tape onto the top and bottom of the left hand corners only as shown in the picture above.

Adhere Strip

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.

Tape the Sides

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.

Scallop Punch

Use a piece of the yellow paper from the paper pad and place it in the Circle Scallop Studio Punch by Epiphany Crafts.  Add the same shaped bottle cap and punch the yellow scalloped circle.

Punch a 1” circle using a circle punch from the pink card stock and place it behind the scallop circle adhering both to the basket with a tape runner.

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!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
