Paper Easter Baskets
I love making little Easter baskets out of paper. They are perfect for delivering little treats. Or for setting a beautiful Easter table.
These flower shaped baskets are quick and easy to put together so you can whip up a bunch in no time!
And each basket uses only 2 sheets of paper. One piece of cardstock has the petal decorations printed on it and the outer layer is just a simple piece of colored paper.
So have fun making up loads of little flower baskets for a little pop of spring!
How to Make a Paper Flower Basket
- Candlestick template
- Colored paper
- I love using hot glue for my paper crafts since it dries fast and holds paper securely.
- Optional: Electronic cutting machineI love using my Silhouette Cameo to quickly cut out paper decor projects, but you can also use scissors.
Print and cut out the petal textured piece from a piece of cardstock.
Then cut out a second flower basket piece without the printed design in it from the colored paper. If using an electronic cutting machine, delete the registration marks and just cut it out normally.
When removing the paper from the cutting mat, flip it over and remove the mat from the paper to keep it from curling.
Fold along all the dotted lines.
Start glueing the cardstock basket piece. Fold the flaps to the outside of the basket when you glue.
Then glue together the colored paper basket piece. This time, fold the flaps to the inside of the basket.
Curl the top of each petal over around a pencil so it opens up the basket and curls it under.
Repeat on the colored basket.
Glue the cardstock basket inside the colored paper basket by placing a few dots of glue on the bottom of the cardstock basket. Then push it into the colored paper basket.
To attach the handle, tuck the handle between the two baskets between two petals. Secure with glue. Then tuck the other side of the handle into the other side of the basket and glue.
Now you are ready to fill your new paper Easter Basket. I love using crimped shredded paper and lots of candies!
These baskets make the perfect way to deliver any Easter or spring treat. They would even be perfect for holding a muffin or cupcake.
