Stampin' Up! Everyday Elegance Easter Baskets

Aren't these adorable?  And so EASY to make yourself.  I love the way the Everyday Elegance designer series paper works for these little Easter baskets.
You can still get the Everyday Elegance paper for FREE today and tomorrow with a $50 purchase. 
Check out my additional FREE stuff offer post HERE. and don't miss out on on your FREE Sale A Bration choice.
Sale A Bration ends on March 31st.

Here's how you make 'em...
You'll need a 4 1/2inch x 5 inch piece of paper.
Score at 1 1/2 inches and 3 inches along the 4 1/2 inch side, as shown above. (The Simply Scored Scoring tool is great for this and if you're going to make several, just put your markers in place)
 Along the 5 inch side, score at 1 1/2 inches and at 3 1/2 inches, as shown above.
Cut along your score lines as shown.  Cut from the 4 1/2 inch side up to the score line on both ends, creating 3 tabs of equal length and width.
Fold basket on all score lines and fold together as shown.  Holding tabs in place on one end, punch through all three layers.  Do this on both sides.
The handle is 7 inches by 1/2 inch.  punch a hole in each handle end as shown.
Put brad through all tabs and through one handle end and fasten by folding brad tines back.  Do the same on the other side and your basket is done!  You can do all sorts of things to decorate.  Mine are really simple, because I wanted to demonstrate a quick and easy project.  When you use designer series paper and designer brads that coordinate it's really easy to create a WOW factor with your simple projects.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and don't forget about Sale A Bration!
Til later,
Kelly
