How to Make a Little Treats Easter Basket

This little basket was something I had seen on You Tube the other day.   The idea came from Connie Stewart from Simply Simple.  She had a great tutorial.  I have put together a picture tutorial for you.

I have a basket weave stamp that I used for the project.  It is not necessary though, you could use your cuddlebug or anything else you would like.  Using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Small
I cut out two, one for each side.

This will make the inside of your basket,  paper measures 5 1/2" X 2 1/2".  You will score along the side of the paper 1/4" in on each side.  You need to also score it at 1 3/4" across on both ends. 

I used tacky tape to secure my project together.  Putting the tape on the 1/4" side of the paper.  This will adhere the sides to the basket.  Also note that I have added tape to both of the sides, just at the very bottom of the scalloped oval.  This little edge will fold in under the basket, this helps it set nicely.  Be sure to cut through the tape and card just to the score line on all score lines where they intersect,  there will be four places you will need to do this.

This photo is showing how I adhered the sides to the bottom of the basket.

Now it is time to set the sides in place.  I just set one side at a time being sure to line it up in the same place each time.

This gives you a clear view of what it looks like when set in place before begging the other side of the basket.
On this basket I used the same stamped basket stamp to make the handle.
The stamp set I used was from CTMH, Hoppy Easter Holiday.
