Quick and easy to make, in five minutes you will have a cute paper basket you can fill with chocolate or little gifts.
All you need is a square piece of paper (I used double sided printed paper), scissors, glue a ruler and a pencil.
For the small basket I used a 6" piece of paper and for the big basket a 12" piece of paper.
With a pencil and ruler draw an evenly spaced 3 x 3 grid onto the paper.
for the 6" piece of paper draw the lines 2" apart.
Fold and unfold along each of the lines to make a crease
make cuts like in the pic below
fold up the left and the right side of the paper to turn it into a basket
and glue the sides see pics below
use a strip of paper to make a handle and glue it on the basket.
I also put some brads through
and filled the baskets with chocolate eggs
I did a similar basket except square for Country Folk Art Magazine-when the pattern is imple you can make such projects just about any size and with a wide variety of finishes.
Thanks Monique for another great TUT!
