Easy Easter Basket Box
GlueArts Designer: Ania Lexander

The Internet is brimming with splendid Easter Basket templates - just do a pictural google search and pick the one to your liking! Mine comes from Martha Stewart, I just changed the top into circular ones instead of the bunny ones. 

You can find the template I used here: http://www.marthastewart.com/270638/easter...07&slide=270638

This is supposed to be a lunch box one, but you can hide lots of sweet things inside this box...

Glue Arts supplies: Hot glue gun

Other: Crate Paper patterned papers, Fancy Pants ribbon, bakers twine from the twinery, bunny stamp from Craft Origine

Assemble your template and trace it onto your patterned paper (on the BACKSIDE, the side you won't have facing outwards). Cut and fold as instructed.

For the top I wanted hankers you could hold onto, so I changed it into the shape as pictured and used my circle punch to punch out handlers.

Use a fairly broad ribbon, and stitch onto the edge as pictured and tie the thread so you'll get a circular shape when finished.

Cut an egg shape from a scrap of patterned paper, stamp a cute bunny onto it and assemble the egg and the ribbon on a piece of tag with some hot glue.
