Goodie Baskets

Hello Everyone!
Today we're going to share an easy-peasy Treat Basket project.
All you really need for this (besides some cute papers) is an oval or circle cutter.

To begin, you'll want to cut 2 ovals or circles from the same or 2 co-ordinating papers. Double-sided works the best so your basket won't have a blah, boring inside. You can leave the edges smooth or use a scallopped scissors for a cuter presentation like we did.

Next, fold your pieces in half:

Then, simply slide them together, forming a point at the bottom. Adhere them together.

After that, attach a paper handle (we punched holes in ours & threaded some ribbon through) and secure it with 2 brads.

Then it's ready for you to jazz up with your favorite embellies & fill with some yummies!

We think this would be a sweet gift for a teacher, surprise a co-worker with one, or hang one on your kid's bedroom doorknobs on Valentine's morning.

Thanks for looking!
TaTa till next time . . . .
