We wanted to give some Easter eggs to friends this week, so paper baskets were in order. Here's a very simple design:
Cut a rectangle of cardstock (we used scrapbooking paper/card). Fold the top down, say 2cm or half an inch. Fold the other end up the other way - this will be the bottom. Cut notches up to this fold line (see photo).
Create a cylinder and tuck one end under the upper fold. Stickytape along the join. Stickytape the notches flat, to create the base of the basket. Add a strip of paper/card (folded in half for more stability) and tape it to the basket for a handle...
...and viola! An easy basket for chocolate treasures!
