Hello fellow crafters! It's me, America.
Welcome to my very first tutorial here on Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot. Today I'm going to be showing you step-by-step instructions on how-to create these super cute, very simple, Mini Easter Treat Baskets. :)
Heavy White CS & Spring Colors CS
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Easter Shimmery Butterflies (from Michael's)
Easter Candies, Chocolates & Jelly Beans
Take an 8 & 1/2 x 11 Cardstock Paper (I use 110lb weight) and cut down to measure 8 &1/2 x 4 & 1/2. Then widthwise, score at 3, 5&1/4, 8&1/4 & 10&1/2.
Turn lengthwise, measure and score at 3 inches.
Punch along one edge with your favorite EDGE Punch.
Cut along scored lines as shown:
Begin to assemble and adhere basket at flaps.
Using a Cuttlebug Folder, dry emboss a strip of white CS measuring 2 & 1/2 x 11 inches. Then Score at 3 in, 5 1/4 in, 8 & 1/4 in and 10 & 1/2 in. Adhere this strip to basket using Zip Dry Paper Glue.
Last, cut 2 strips of paper to 1 & 1/2 inches wide & punch one side with edge punch! Overlap these 2 strips as shown & adhere together.
AND here are the final results! Fun & FAST! :)
QUICK & simple! Please let us know what you think!
Thanks for Looking & Happy Creating!
