Easter Basket Template

Today I have a fun template to share....

You can make an Easter Basket from one 12x12 sheet of cardstock!

Quick and oh so easy...just a few snips and you'll be set to go.

Now, I'm just going to show you how to assemble the basket using plain white cardstock so it's easy to see the score lines, folded flaps, etc. BUT since we're using cardstock it is PERFECT for stamping, inking, painting, incorporating all sorts of cool techniques and embellishments.

The sky is the limit to spruce these little babies up!

They are perfect to create a personalized little basket for each person on your Bunny List ;)


1. Cut a 2" strip off of one side of your cardstock.

2. Score and cut all lines as directed.

a solid line _________ = Cut Lines

a dash line - - - - - - - = Score Lines

3. Apply a dab of adhesive on the 3/4" flap on both of the short ends.

5. Apply a bit of adhesive on the 3/4" flap on both of the long sides.

6. Stand the short ends up and position the square end flaps on the inside of the long side. Fold the side flap over ~ this flap will secure the ends in the upright position as shown.

Repeat on the other side.

You should now have a nice basket bottom!
