Easter Basket Tutorial

By

After receiving many requests for the instructions to make the Easter Baskets I posted last week, I decided to give you a photo step-by-step tutorial so you can make one (or 50) for yourself!

SCALLOP ENVELOPE EASTER BASKET

To make a basket, you will need:

- Big Shot and Scallop Envelope die – 2 die cut from desired cardstock

- same cardstock color cut to 1 5/8″ x 7 5/8″ (I used So Saffron)

- designer series paper cut to 1 1/2″ x 11″ ( I used Tea Party dsp)

- embellishments and Sticky Strip adhesive

STEP 1.

Fold all tabs on envelopes – don’t fold on scallop flap fold.

Score the So Saffron cardstock strip at 2 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.

STEP 2.

Adhere bottom tab of one envelope to the middle portion of So Saffron strip.

STEP 3.

Repeat with second envelope.

STEP 4.

Turn the basket over and apply Sticky Strip along the score lines of all 4 side tabs.  Remove red backing from adhesive, one at a time and secure to So Saffron strip creating a box.

  STEP 5.

Wrap and adhere the dsp strip around box starting at the front.  When you are finished, you will not see a dsp seem as the front flap and embellishments will hide it.

Bring front flap down and secure with Sticky Strip.

STEP 6.

Using the large oval punch (small oval would work also), punch handle from remaining scallop flap.  Embellish your basket as desired.

 I would love to see your basket creations!!

TTFN!
