Hello!! I hope you are all doing ok.... it's actually sunny here in Manchester Uk!! Whoop Whoop!! and no snow!! LOL I really hope that wherever you live ... the sun is with you also! ;-)
I thought I would show these little Easter Baskets that I made for my mum and daughter... They are Origami folded and instructions are here! They are very quick to make!! and the only glue I needed was for handles...
They are made with a Square of Design Paper... and it works better if the paper is not too thick... the red, black and white DP is Papermania 'Oriental Treasures' that my daughter bought for me a couple of years ago ... so gorgeous!! and the other green and pink basket is made with 'Raspberry Road' paper that was freebie with magazine... I put a strip of folded paper for the handles but you can use ribbon as in the video if you wish...
The square of paper that I've used to make these was about 20.5cm and the baskets have ended up about 7.5cm square... I didn't want them to be too small as I wanted to fit quite a lot of mini eggs in them!! as they are my main pressies for Easter!!
The flowers are Tim Holtz Mini Tattered Florals.. and I've used matching papers.
