Need a last minute Easter basket? Try making one of these simple paper ones, I found the tutorial on Fresh and Fun and she has lots of other great tutorials too. All you have to do is score, cut, and glue...very simple. I made mine with a 12x12 sheet of cardstock, 2x12 inch scrap, and the bunny Sizzlits die that came in the same pack as the chick I used here. My daughter then decorated it with some Easter egg stickers.
They actually hold quite a lot if you use a full sheet of cardstock, and we made two to give to Grammy & Papa and Grandma Norma on Easter with some sweet treats inside. We even managed to make them with supplies we already had on hand. I've also made them in a smaller size and used them as favor baskets for the 4th of July, I just stamped a white paper base with red and blue stars to make it patriotic.I also finished up working on the felt tulip favor cup I found at Four Crazy Kings, and I just got more great news. I won Kim's 100th post giveaway and will be getting a prize package of cards that she designed! I am so excited because I love her illustrations they are so fun and cute. She has a ton of great ideas and she inspires me with great crafts for kids and me!I was going to do a post to show off my Easter decorations, but I ran out of time before the big day. I did want to show off the plastic Easter egg wreath I made, because it took me so long to make it! Even with having to rip the entire thing apart twice, a few hot glue burns, and finding out too late I was short on ribbon I am happy with how it turned out. My problems came up because I couldn't just follow the directions. I had to make mine bigger which meant I needed more eggs and the placement was a bit different. Go see Cindi's at This is My Life, hers is even cuter, wish I'd been able to find some of those iridescent eggs she used.
