I love this little basket.....

..... and it's made from one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 paper. Just score and fold! There was not one piece of Easter candy in my house (which is a good thing), so I had nothing to fill it with. You'll just have to use your imagination and think of all the little goodies you can put in it. If you use sturdy cardstock, this basket will hold up very well. All my papers and embellishments are by Heidi Grace.




If you'd like the template e-mail me and I'll send you a copy of what I used. There's no instructions, just lines where you'll score your paper and then fold. I didn't find it difficult to figure out how it folded together and where the tape needed to go. I used my corner rounder to round the edges on top and then used the word window punch by SU to create my handles.

Absolutely perfect for a little Easter gift, Louise! (Or for any other occasion, actually.)

Thanks a million for the template. And you're right: the folding makes perfect sense, even without words.
