Easter Egg Baskets

These baskets are so effective and it was a joy to make them actually. 

Materials needed:
  • Square sheet of cardstock (I cut mine down to 27cm x 27cm)
  • Ruler
  • Glue
  • Sticky tape
  • Scissors or a guillotine
  • Stickers / items to glue on
  • Shredded paper

There are a couple of really good sites that will show you how to do these see one link below:

Each square equated to 9cm by 9cm.  I basically divied up the 27 x 27 cm sheet into 9 equal squares.  It shows which lines needed to be cut on the S.E.I website.  See their pic below. 

Very easy once scored and cut to bring it all together.....

These are a couple we made that we filled with shredded paper after decorating with stickers.  Each child had letter stickers to add their names to their baskets.

I think the kids will find them perfect for collecting those eggs during their easter egg hunt!!!
