Teeny Tiney Basket for Spring


I have made this basket template many times, but always larger.  Recently my friend Lois gave me a tiny one and I thought it was just so cute this size.  And, it uses less candy to fill it up!

I used paper from the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper Pack, with the Double Oval Punch and Petal Park Builder Punch to complete my basket.  There are so many ways that you can decorate these fun baskets.

Imagine these cuties at each place on the table at Easter.  Or put them on the desks of co-workers, in the mail slots of teachers, or anywhere! They will surely bring a smile. 






 In the past I have started with a 6x6 piece of designer paper or cardstock, but this one starts 4 1/2 by 4 1/2.   Simply score 1 1/2 inches on all four sides, leaving you with a grid of nine 1 1/2 inch squares.  Cut the flaps on two sides across from each other.  The Handle is 6 by 1/2.  You can attach the handle with glue or brads. Brads are a great choice because then your handles can move. You can even stack them for easier transport or storage if you move the handles to one side with the brads and then straighten them up when you are ready to use them.
