Fun Easter Basket Tutorial!

I brought this basket over from my old website and unfortunately these products are no longer available, HOWEVER I will be making a new one featuring the new Scrapbooking Papers from Close To My Heart in March!

Fun and Unique Basket

Hey Scrappers! Today I am going to post a tutorial on how to make this cute basket! I am not going to do a video of this one, as it is pretty simple. Lets get started!

You will need the Sophia Paper Pack, HollyHock Ink, A Paper Trimmer, Adhesive, and some flowers.

First, you are going to cut an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of white cardstock, and you are going to score each side at 2 1/2. Then, you are going to cute up from the two top scores to where the other score meets, and do the same for the bottom so you have tabs.

Then, you will need 4 pieces of 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 pieces of hollyhock paper (the four corners) and you will need 4 pieces of 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 hollyhock paper (the four outer centers) as shown in the picture above.

Next, you will choose a design out of the Sophia Workshop and you will need 4 pieces of 2 x 2 pieces and 4 pieces of 2 x3 inches to go inside of the hollyhock paper you cut out. Leave the center white, as this is the bottom. Next, you are going to sponge the edges of the patterned paper with hollyhock and adhere, as shown below!

Lookin Good!!

Next, you will adhere it so it looks like this. Fold up the sides and adhere so they have a bit of a slant to them.

The handle is 1 1/2 x 11 piece of white cardstock, and then 1 1/4 x 11 piece of of patterned paper. I just adhered it to the inside like so..

Finally, the best part, you are going to attach a flower, or a stamped image to each side near the handles.

And there you have it! Happy Crafting!
