Instructions to Make Your Own Paper Easter Basket
Color the pieces of the Easter basket outline. We used colored pencils to make colorful stripes on the sides of the Easter basket and then used each color in the stripes on a flower. For the handle piece, we cross-hatched the colored pencil marks so it looked more like a traditional Easter basket.
The basket prints as a blank pattern so you can decorate it with whatever design you prefer.
Cut out the basket and the basket accessory pieces with scissors.
Fold the Easter basket cut out along all the lines using the tabs to tuck inside.
Use the tabs to glue the basket template into an Easter basket shape.
Glue on the handle and the the accessory pieces like flowers and the “Happy Easter” banner.
Craft tip: Once you decide where you want the handle to be, make a slit in the basket side to slip the end of the handle through and attach on the inside of the basket.
Fill up your Easter basket craft with treats of your choice and give as a gift or enjoy yourself.
