Mini Easter Gift baskets #BostikBloggers

Easter is only 4 weeks away and now is the perfect time to start planning your Easter gifts. I love making home made gifts which are always appreciated more and gives the receiver great pleasure. These easter baskets are fairly easy to make and look great when filled with sweets or home made treats.

These cute and simple baskets are perfect for filling with mini easter eggs, chocolates, cookies or mini cakes too.

You will need:

  • Scissors/ pinking shears
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Glue / Glue dots
  • Cup cake liner (any colour)
  • Yellow card
  • Green card
  • Ribbon
  • Motifs or flowers for decoration
  • Gifts to fill basket ie mini Easter Eggs or Sweets
  • Shredded tissue paper
You can also watch the video to see how to make these beautiful baskets here:

How to make:

1. Using the pink cupcake liner as a template, place it on the yellow card and draw around it with a pencil.(if you don't have a cupcake liner you can draw the shape free hand as shown in picture.)
2. Extend the bottom edge of the yellow liner by 5mm.
3. Cut out the yellow liner shape as this will be the inside of the basket and it will sit proud by 5 mm from the top rim of pink liner.

4. Make both liners up by securing the flap with glue.(This is the pink basket and the yellow basket)

5. Place the pink liner onto the green card and using a pencil draw a circle around the inside bottom edge .
6.  Draw another circle 5mm bigger than the original circle on the same green card and cut the circle out with decorative scissors or plain scissors. This is the base of the basket.

7. On green card draw a 2 cm strip 30 cm long and cut it out with decorative or plain scissors. This will be the basket handle.
8. Decorate the handle by sticking a contrasting colour ribbon on it.

9. Stick the handle inside the pink basket at opposite sides to each other.
10. Glue the inside edge of the pink basket and stick the yellow basket inside it so that it sits 5mm above the rim of the pink basket.

11. Place a line of glue to the bottom rim of the basket and stick the basket to the green circle base. Hold it firmly till basket sticks to base.
12. Wipe any excess glue off.

13. Decorate the outside of the basket with flowers or motifs if desired.

14. Cut some green tissue paper into straw and fill up basket. Fill basket with Easter gifts such as eggs, chicks, or treats of choice.
