I love making things to give away and this mini petal Easter basket is a quick and easy little gift for co-workers, friends and family members! My kids are all grown now, and they are all “watching what they eat”, so I thought this would be a perfect size to give each of them for just a little treat this Easter. Definitely not enough to ruin their healthy living lifestyle, but enough to satisfy their sweet tooth!
This project was easy. I actually ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot Pro machine just because I wanted to use a 12 x 12 piece of paper, so I could fit 2 baskets per sheet, but this die will work in most of the manual die cutting machines, if the opening is approximately 6″ wide, such as the Cuttlebug or Big Shot machines. All the folds lines are made when the die is cut, so it is easy to crease. All you have to do is glue the tabs.
The handle was cut from the left over paper with my paper cutter to approx. 3/4″ wide and glued on the inside. I added the flower on the side and filled it will a bit of Easter grass and candy! So simple! Of course, you could use this for parties, bridal showers or other occasions with or without a handle!
All you need is:
Heavy paper or cardstock. I used First Edition Spring Drop 12 x 12 Paper Stack, but any will do.
