Simple Easter baskets

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!
