Easter Basket Tutorial

From Designer Series Paper cut 5 strips 1" x 8 1/2" and 1 strip for the handle 3/4" x 8 1/2" strip.
Then take one of the strips and put sticky strip down the center on the side of the DSP that you do not want to see.
Take one of the DSP strips and with the side down on the side you want to see, which would be the outside of the basket start laying them side by side starting on the left side.


 Take the far left strip and pull it up next to the last strip.  Keep doing this until you have done this to all 4 strips - see the picture above.

You will have a little piece leftover to attach to the other side to make it into the basket.
Stick your hand inside the basket to form fit it so it will sit nice and not fall over.
Then attach the handle and on one side cover where you over lapped the edges.
I used the Pinwheel Die and a brad and attached on each side of the handle.


I made these for my Grand-Children for Easter.  I am sure they will like them.
Thanks to Pat Richardson for sharing this idea!
