I love the delicate look created by the overlay and the ribbon-threaded handle. It's small enough that it only takes a handful of chocolates or other goodies to fill it up, but it's big enough to hold a chocolate bunny or even a small gift, and the reinforcement of the ribbon threaded through the handle and around the body of the basket makes it sturdy enough to hold them! I've included some rick-rack (not used in mine) in the file to give you some decorating options to make several baskets that look different, or so that you have a less frilly version for the males on your Easter gift list.
I didn't make a tutorial for this one because it's pretty simple, but here are the basic instructions:
1. Cut, score and fold basket base and overlay.
2. Adhere overlay to base, matching edges and holes in bottom. Attach rick-rack, if desired.
3. Apply adhesive to tabs on basket base and assemble sides, gently curving to follow egg shape.
4. Adhere handle to sides of basket, aligning holes. Beginning at top, center of handle, weave ribbon in and out of holes until you have gone all the way around back to the center (you will need about 28-30"). Tie bow on top.
That's it - simple but elegant! If you have any questions at all, you can either leave it in a post below or you can email me. Please do comment if you download it, and as always, I would love to see photos of yours!
