Bev has made this little Easter Basket along with step by step pictures and instructions so you can have a go at home.
I’m sure that this is something the kids would love to help make.
1. Die cut Two large rectangles from white card, die cut 2 smaller mats from contrasting card and 2 smaller again mats from patterned paper, and adhere the layers together with glue (Collall)
2. Punch a handle 11.5" long by the width of your punch (no wider than the gusset in next step)
3. Make the gusset. Cut a piece of card 10.75" long x 3" wide. Score at 0.5" and 2.5", rotate and score at 2.75" and 8". Trim on folds as shown in photo, crease and fold all score lines. Apply STRONG tape (like red line tape or score tape)
4. Assemble as shown.
5. Attach the back of the basket as shown, then repeat with the front, making sure both front and back line up evenly.
6. Punch or pierce a tiny hole on both sides of the gusset.
7. Attach handle with wet glue and secure with a brad. Punch a 1" circle from white card and adhere over the legs of the brads on the inside of the basket.
Decorate your basket as desired.
Dies - spellbinders, paper Kaisercraft, embellishments Wild Orchid Crafts. Coloured with Copics and pencils - Bunny C3, 1, 0, 00 and black pencil. Greens YG63, 61, G20. Border punch Martha Stewart Deep Edger Punch
