I made these little Easter Baskets as favors for each place setting at the March Candy Hearts team meeting. You can read about the gathering here. I used Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper and the blue bows from the coordinating Embellishment Kit. These go together super fast.


Here’s what I made:

Cute little baskets you can modify for any occasion - Cupcakes & Carousels, #candyhearts team meeting March 2017, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″, then scored at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ on one side, then rotated it 90 and scored again at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″
  • DSP to 3/4″ x 4″ strip

Cut with Paper Snips:

  • two score lines on each of two opposite sides
  • Diagram: solid lines = cut, and dotted lines = fold

Assembled the basket:

  • folded up the three sections along one of the cut sides
  • angled in the two outer pieces and glued to the center piece
  • repeated on the other side
  • glued handle to inside of basket on each side
  • adhered a bow to the basket with Mini Glue Dots
  • filled with crinkly gift bag filler and Easter candies by Cadbury and Lindt


Here’s what I used:
