Gingham Baskets

A quick post to share the treats I sent home with my class participants this week. I always like to make a little treat for them to take home with them. These baskets are a breeze to make.

I filled them with Belgian and Italian Easter chocolates I purchased at TJ Maxx. I again used the perfect spring flower - the daisy! My peeps thought these were so cute so at the end of class I did an impromptu tutorial for them.

Cut your card stock in a length that can be divided by 3. These little baskets I used 6" x 6" paper. I scored at 2" and 4" and burnished the score lines. On 2 opposite sides cut the score line up to the intersecting score line. Cut the DSP to 1 7/8" squares and adhered the squares to the 4 outside corners. Take the outside corners of the paper, bring them toward the middle and match the points up. Use an adhesive to hold them in place. Do the same on the other side. For the handle, cut a 3/4" x 6" piece of card stock and a 1/2" x 6" piece of dsp. I used Tombow glue to attach the handle to the inside of the basket. You can rest it on top of the middle square. You can make multiples of these in no time!

I also made a bigger one:

I cut the card stock at 8 1/4" x 8 1/4", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"  and followed the same procedure.

If you're looking for a cute, fun and QUICK project, this is one for you.
