How-tos for the Mini Spring Basket

Here's the simple directions for the mini Spring basket I posted earlier today. Start with a piece of cardstock 4.5" L x 4.75" H.

If it's printed on both sides, turn over to the "wrong side". Score in 1.5" from each of the four edges. Crease well and unfold.

Snip at the four points indicated by the arrows, stopping at the horizontal crease lines.

Corner round each tab as shown.

Put a piece of double stick tape on each tab as shown.

Fold up each side, overlapping the tabs.

Fold the tabs down and adhere with double stick tape to the basket.

Cut two strips for the handles: 6" x .75" and 6" x .5". Layer the two strips. Corner round the ends and attach to the basket.

And there you have it, your mini Spring Basket! Fill with goodies and give away to your family and friends! Thanks for waiting for the measurements and directions, see how easy it was? Happy Spring!
