Do you love free SVG files? As a graphic designer, I love creating SVG files, and I will be sharing projects and free SVG files with you. Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I have a cardstock basket cut file to share with the CutCardStock design team. 


3D cut files are so fun to put together. I really enjoy the useful ones like this basket. You can use it for a quick gift wrap, storage, or as an Easter basket. Just cut, fold, and tape it together, and it is done. But you can add your own embellishments to make it your own.

Solar White

To make the basket, I used Classic Linen Card Stock in Solar White. At 100# cover, it is a very sturdy paper and works well for this project.

Tip: Cutting the Classic Linen Card Stock on a Cricut Maker, I cut the design twice at the 100# card stock setting with more pressure.

The cut card stock file looks like the above image after cutting on your personal cutting machine. Fold along the score lines.


Tape the four tabs with double-sided tape or use a tacky adhesive. Then just attach.

Now fill the cardstock basket as you desire and embellish. I tied a ribbon at the top. You can do the same and use further elements to style it as you’d like.
