Create a beautiful Easter treats basket with this tutorial! Stephanie shows you how to create this beautiful project with her step by step tutorial below.
After Easter, you could make this for any occasion... they would make wonderful favors for a party or wedding, or to hold hostess gifts throughout the year, just change up the patterned paper or add decorative stamps! Other ideas include: teacher gifts, class treat favors, Halloween bags, Christmas advent gifts - the possibilities are endless!

Other Supplies: hole punche, assortment of ribbon, paper trimmer, scissors
Step 1: Die cut two ovals using your preferred cardstock.
Step 2: Using your Ultimate Tool, score each oval at the Gatefold 12x12 scoring line. This will give your ovals a flat bottom, allowing them to sit flat on a table.
Step 3: Cut another piece of cardstock to 6 inches by 3 inches. This will be used to form the basket.
Step 4: Score the length of the cardstock ½ inch on either side. Score the width of the cardstock 1 ½ inches on either side.
Step 5: Crease the score lines you have created. Cut inward along the 1 ½ inch score line and stopping at the ½ inch score line. Then miter the corners so that it begins to look something like the picture.
Step 6: Glue the rectangular piece of cardstock to the oval using Tacky Glue. Do the same thing to the second oval. Your basket is now formed.
Step 7: If desired, use a hole punch and add ribbon handles. Add any further embellishments you desire.
Have fun making some of these and filling them full of chocolates for your friends and family!
