I saw this cute little Easter basket on Splitcoaststampers and knew I had to try to make one for myself. Unlike the one on Splitcoast, I did use adhesive to hold everything together. It was too taxing on my brain to figure out how to do it without.
I glued together two MFT picket fences by overlapping one of the pickets. Fold after every 9 pickets to make a box. There will be one picket left over that you will overlap and glue to the first picket to complete the box. I then cut a 3 1/2" square and scored at 1/4" on all sides to make the bottom. Fold sides up and put adhesive around the edges and fit inside the picket fence. I used Martha Stewart punches for the grass, handle and butterflies. The vine is a Poppystamps die. I colored the Pure Innocence My Basket of Eggs girl with Copics and cut out. I cut the bunny out of a scrap of Bella Blvd. paper.
I made this while I was at the Embellished Scrapbook Boutique and did not have anything to fill the basket. I borrowed the eggs, chick and grass from another teacher (unbeknownst to her - Marianne, you can have it all back!) so that I could complete my project. The store owner decided she is going to use it as a project this week when she has her MRDD class.
