Easter is Coming

Easter is just around the corner and this week I would like to share some quick and easy Easter projects with you.

You will need :
4 x strips double sided paper 22cm x3cm
1 x strip plain card 26cm x 4.5cm (rim)
1 x strip plain card 30cm x 4cm (handle)
1 x strip patterned paper 30cm x 1cm (handle trim)
Scalloped edge punch
Double sided tape.
Embellishments of your choice
Step 1: Using the 26cm x 4.5cm strip of card punch one edge with the scalloped punch.
Step2: Lay the strip flat on your bench and run 2 strips of double side tape along the full length approx 1cm down from the scallop. Attach the strips of patterned paper side by side on the tape

Step 3: Take the first strip and turn it upwards and glue it next to the fourth strip. Continue until all the strips are stuck and your basket is forming.

Step 4: Line the edge of the strips up and glue the basket together.
Scallop both side of the handle and add the patterned paper strip.
Attach the handles on either side. You can attach these either on the inside or the outside

Decorate the basket as you wish and fill with chocolate eggs.
