Quick and Easy Baskets

Hey All! Today I have an adorable yet quick and easy basket for you that is just perfect for little bits of Easter candy.
I just love how quick they go together and all you need is an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock and some scrap DSP. To begin, I trimmed off a 1/2" x 11" from the full sheet of cardstock to use as a handle, I then cut the cardstock down to a 6" x 6" square and scored all 4 sides at 2" and 4", clipped up 4 score lines, folded all the score lines added a 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" piece of DSP to all 4 corners, brought the sides up over the center, inserted the handle and stapled into place. I then covered the staple with an embellishment. The Mint Macaron basket is using retired DSP and embellishments, however the Crumb Cake basket is using the Falling In Love DSP from the Occasions Catalog and I punched the large butterfly from Blushing Bride, and stamped the small butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri in Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and punched with the small butterfly punch and attached with glue dots. Here is a template I made showing the score and cut lines.
Hopefully you will find this helpful. I also did a FB Live showing just how easy it is, so if you would like to watch as I put one of these together, hop on over to www.facebook.com/snsfromtheheart and check out the video.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Have a great day and Happy Stamping,
