Easter Baskets - Children's Crafts

Easter and Spring Break are almost here! So, we created this cute project in order to combine the these two occasions. These Easter baskets will keep the kids entertained for some time, create fun bonding moments, and can be used on Easter day to go egg hunting! They can also be used to add some decor to your family gathering. 
Create you own by following these instructions:
Best Creation Glitter Cardstock Papers (GCS067, GCS065, GCS066)
Best Creation Basic Glitter papers (BGP202, BGP204, BGP201)
Foam Tape
6 Brads
Print-n-Cut Design
Bone folder
Rotary Trimmer 17”
Scissors or cutting machine
Step 1.   Cut the Glitter Cardstock Papers GCS067 (Hot Blue), 
GCS065 (Hot Pink), & GCS066 (Yellow) using your 
cutting machine or scissors (6x6" each).
6x6" sheet

Step 2.   Score the layer using a bone folder. 
(Refer to the graphic = score at 2” for each side).

Step 3.  Cut the 4 corners, like the graphic.
Step 4.  Round the corners of each sheet (Refer to graphic).
 Step 5.  Fold the ends together to form the base of the basket. 
Then, punch a small hole on the sides, as shown in the photo. 
This is where the brads will go.
Step 6.  Cut out the basket handles using the 3 Glitter Cardstock Papers 
into a 1 x 8½" size. You can use cutting machine or scissors.

Step 6A.  Place the handles on each basket base, starting from the side 
with the hole punch to the next side. Insert the brad on each side to hold it all together. 
(The brad on the photo had a flower design in the front, but you can use any brad
 without design, too).
This is what the inside will look like once the brads are inserted.

Step 7.  Cut out the Basic Glitter Papers to decorate the basket base and handle. 
Use fabric glue to attach the Basic Glitter Papers to the Glitter Cardstock papers.

Step 7A.  Hole punch again once the Basic Glitter papers are attached, 
and re-insert the brads on each side.

Step 8.  Decorate the basket as you like.

We cut out a scalloped circle shape and attached it to the front of the 
basket using our Foam Tape FT001. You can cut this same shape or 
a different one, such as a heart or a plain circle. You can print the cut-n-print 
images you want and attach those using Foam Tape or fabric glue.
You can change up the colors and choose the cut-n-print images to fit the occasion.

This is our finished product!
You can even use these as party favors or decorations and change up the colors and designs to fit different themes.
We hope you enjoyed making this! Send us your finished baskets, or post them on your social sites and tag us!

Ocean Themed

Today's sample creation is a ocean color pallet wedding invitation. 

Here we used our Glitter Card Stock in Prussian Blue(GCS019). We contrasted with a beige sandy color card stock.  We added a mesh white flower with a pearl embellishment to the main invitation and pearls to the rest of the cards. 
For the belly band we used the same color sandy card stock and used our Bakers Twine in Light Sea Green (BT004). We also did a envelope slip with a teal ribbon around to finish the look.

All this was glued using our Glue Tape in Permanent(GT001).
