Hello to everyone.  I have a quick and easy Easter basket project to share with you.   The image has been colored using my Spectrum Noir markers and pencils.

You will need 2 sheets of 12” x 12” card to make this project and some designer paper, if you wish to add layers.  Using your first sheet of 12” x 12” card and your Boxer Board from Crafter’s Companion, score and fold your card at 4” and 8”,  on both the horizontal and vertical lines.

 Score from the outside corner inwards towards the center on your four corner squares.  Fold all of your score lines.

Fold your corner segments inward and punch a hole through both layers, using a single hole punch.

Flatten your construction and apply matting paper, if required, to the four segments which will form the outside of your basket.

Feed twine, ribbon or wire through the central holes and tie together. This forms your basket shape.

Make a handle for your basket, from the second sheet of 12” x 12” card, measuring 12” x 2”. Decorate the handle as desired. For this project punch detail, matting paper and ribbon has been added.
