Basket Tutorial

Hi everyone,

I've seen a bunch of these baskets lately, so I thought I'd share with you how super simple they are to make:

You need a square piece of paper…the bunny basket is done with a 9×9 piece of paper scored at 3 "

You can also use a 6×6 piece of paper scored at 2" or a 12×12 piece of paper scored at 4"

I will show you how to make the bunny basket shown:


-start with a 9×9 piece of printed paper (mine is from Shades of Spring in the Mini Catalog)  And score on all sides at 3"

The scoring forms 9 squares…on each corner box, score on the diagonal from the corner point to the center square as shown.  On the 6×6 size you can do it on your scor-pal, but on the larger sizes you need a ruler and a bone folder or stylus.



Once you've scored all the corner squares, fold on all the score lines.


Bring the folds together to form edge of box.

Using your poker, put a piece of ribbon or a strip of cardstock between the layers (so it is hidden) and punch a hold through all of the layers and add a brad.

Here is the side view of my bunny basket…I used the pretty in pink epoxy brads from the mini catalog and a 1"x 8 1/2" piece of pretty in pink cardstock.

The bunny is made with a 1 3/4" circle punch, Small and large oval punches, 2- 1/2" circle punches and a Soft Subtle brad.  I chalked the ears and cheeks with the pastels plus a touch of pink taffeta ribbon.  The black marker does the eyes and a scrap of white makes teeth…Super Cute!!!!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!

  1. This little bunny is just the cutest! The only thing that could make this project better would be some chocolate eggs in the basket!
