Easter Baskets

These little baskets are so quick and easy and so much fun to make. I ended up making 40 of the little ones for the staff at work at the last minute yesterday (with a little help from my mom on the assembly!). They're perfect for mini eggs and jelly beans.
The little ones are made with a 3x3 piece of Designer Series Patterned Paper, scored at 1" on all sides. For a bigger basket, use a 6x6 piece and score at 2". Cut along the score lines (to where they intersect) along one side and then do the same to the opposite side. Fold everything up and angle the sides to create your basket. Add a handle and some embellishments and you have a quick and easy gift.
