Ever need a last minute gift? Seriously. Who doesn't?
I wish I was better about thinking ahead, but alas, I have very few brain cells functioning at this juncture.
However, I've got it covered with this little DIY. This may be the easiest paper craft I've done all year.
It's just cut, sew and glue. Tada! Your done!
Here's what you need:
-Enough paper to cut six sides and one bottom from the pattern. Use at least 80lb paper for this project so it is sturdy. Most craft paper that is printed on both sides is heavy enough.-scissors
-hot glue gun
-items to decorate your basket (optional)
Using the pattern, cut out six sides and one bottom. You can enlarge or reduce the pattern to your liking. If you print it out full sized you will have roughly a 6" and 4 1/2" basket.
That's it. Your done! Embellish it if you wish. You could add a ribbon handle or other doodads. I think it would be cute to use scallop scissors to cut the top edges. I used Easter grass, but you could also use tissue paper to line your basket.
Then to the goodies! Oh my. The possibilities are endless. Something sweet!
And in case you are wondering...
The tall pink basket was made from The Girl's Paperie paper by Margie Romney-Aslett and my digital photo elemets come via Rhonna Designs.
