Easter Basket to Make - A4 Printable Template

This Easter Basket is made of thin card and can easily be printed, as the Template is A4 in size. This is how we made it up...

You will need...
A4 Sheet of thin card
Paints or felt tip pens
2 Split Pins
"Nest filling" - we used toy filling, but you can use cotton wool or shredded tissue paper just as well.
Stickers for the handle (or draw your own pictures)
Mini Easter Eggs
Chicks - we bought ours at our local craft shop.

How to Make it...

Print the Easter Basket Template directly onto your thin sheet of card.

Colour-in the Bunny and Easter lettering.

Cut out the basket and round off the corners.

Cut along the four lines as in the picture.

Cut out the handle.

Fold up the two ends and fold the pieces with the rounded corners over them. Slip the end of the handle against the inside, so you now have four layers. Make a small hole through these four layers (we used a large darning needle) and hold them together with a split pin (also called a Brad)

Decorate the handle with stickers.

Place your Nest Filling into your basket and arrange your eggs and chicks.

Have fun making your Easter Baskets! And eating all that yummy chocolate...!
