Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Easter Favors. I saw an adorable little basket that is quick and easy to make, and can be scaled up or down to suit. Thank goodness Mom is visiting, because she brought Hershey Chocolate Eggs. I wouldn't have had anything to put in the basket for the photos since we don't have anything with sugar in the house, LOL. Thanks, Mom! (Now take it home, please!!!)
This basket uses a 6" x 6" piece of DSP, so you can use the 6" x 6" DSP packs or get four baskets out of one sheet of 12" x 12" DSP. If making a larger basket, you can use a square of cardstock for a sturdier base and decorate with DSP.
Score the six inch square at 2" and 4". Rotate 90 degrees and score at 2" and 4". Fold on all scorelines. Cut two 3/8" x 6 inch strips of cardstock and use the scalloped edge die on both. Glue scallops to opposite sides of the DSP. Cut scorelines up to line from the unscalloped sides, as shown below.
Fold the basket sides up and adhere with glue. Cut a 1/2" x 6" strip of cardstock for the handle. Decorate as desired!
