    Default Making Easter Baskets - ???

    My DS wants to make some easter baskets to give his eggs away in. Does anyone have a simple plan or instruction to make an easter basket? I vaguely remember doing something similar in my school days that was square shaped and had a handle.



    TIA!!!

    I remember making them when I was younger! We used to put shredded paper in the bottom, to make them look like a nest lol.

    Have fun making them!

    ok this was in a magazine last week I think

    buy the muti colored kitchen sponge wipes, you know the flat sponge ones

    1. trim to make square keeping the bit you cut
    2. the divide the square into 9 equal parts
    3. cut out the four corner peices
    4. your left with a cross shape bring up each side and join with small amount hot glue
    5. use the trim bit to make a handle,
    6. leave plain or decorate as uyou please


    hope that helps

    Thanks for the ideas - I should have thought of googling but having some serious pregnant memory lapses ATM - this morning I put vegemite on my honey toast.

    I thought about doing this but since there are 30 kiddies in my sons preschool class I gave the idea a miss. I went to spotlight the other day and got some little easter party bags I have also seen them at Big W they are cheap and saved me some time. I put 3 little solid eggs in each one and a home made bunny cookie . We gave them out yesterday and everyone was impressed.
