Envelope Punch Board Basket

Envelope Punch Board, Easter, Stampin Up Eggstra Spectacular

 

SUOChallenges want to see boxes, bags & baskets. AddictedToStamps have the theme "holidays".


 

If you would like to have a go, the (numerous!) pictures that follow explain how to make a basket.

You will need a 6" square of card - you could scale the basket larger if you wish but these measurements are perfect to make 4 baskets from a standard 12" sheet of card.

 

First, line it up at 1 1/2", punch & score. Do this on all 4 sides.

 

Turn the card over and do the same again for all 4 sides.

 

Choose a corner and cut along the scored lines up to the centre scored square.

Do the same for the opposite corner.

 

You are going to then glue the flaps either side of the cut section to make your basket shape.

 

Difficult to explain but hopefully the pictures will show what I mean!

 

Then fold over the remaining 4 flaps and glue.

I suppose you could cut these flaps off if you wished but I find they give the basket added rigidity.

You then need a strip of card 1.5 x 15cm for the handle.

Have fun!

  3. I really like this Lindsey especially as it is in kraft not over fussy. I sometimes find Easter baskets too frilly etc but this is really elegant...I wouldn't attempt it myself, too scary!! Thanks for joining us at ATSM
