Hi CutCardStock friends! Take a “peep” at this EGG-stremely easy Easter treat basket pattern. It’s adorable and is surprisingly big enough to hold a couple Easter eggs or treats inside. The best part is it is made from a simple square of CutCardStock!
I’m making baskets for both a boy and a girl, so I chose Stardream Metallic Vista and Shimmery Pink Taffeta as my base, cut to a 6” by 6” square each. Using a scoring board, I’ve added fold lines at 2” and 4” in both directions to make a checkerboard pattern.
I cut in on the folded lines only to the middle square on the top and bottom sides. The picture shows the cut lines in a black pen. Then I folded all the remaining lines in and trimmed the corners with a corner punch.
The polka dot paper is from the Hello Darling We R Memory Keepers pad, cut at 1.75” by 1.75”. You’ll need 4 squares for each basket corner. I used the corner punch on these also before gluing on the outer corners.
Taking the outer 2 corners, I’ve folded them up part of the way on each side and added a strip of matching card stock to the middle as a handle. It’s best to staple these into place, so your contents are secure. Do the same on the other side.
The bunny embellishments come from a peep die cut. However, I’ve also seen a bunny shape similar to this in the Cricut design library. I wanted these bunnies to shine like the baskets, so I used the Curious Metallic Violette and the Curious Metallic White Silver. I attached a pom-pom tail and glued it on to finish up my Easter treat basket.
