Easter Basket


I have included a tutorial for making this cute Easter Basket.


I used the petal cone die to make this pretty Easter basket. I cut three cones, 6 scallop half circles, and 3 banners out in Pretty in Pink card stock. I measured 3 inches from the top fold and cut off the end, then measured 2 inches from the fold and scored the lines.

After preparing each panel as shown and attaching the 3 panels together, I punched out 2 flowers using the Fancy Flower Punch. I attached one on the inside bottom area and the second one on the outside bottom area. I punched 3 circles of the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper using the 2 1/2 inch circle punch, cut them in half and attached them to the flaps. I cut three 3/8 x 4 inch strips of the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper and attached them to the banner pieces. I attached the banners together and then to the basket with the Subtles glimmer brads. The final touch was adding the scalloped half circles to each flap.
