Getting in the Easter Spirit

      Today I decided to sit down and decide what I was going to do next month for my son's class for Easter.  He is in kindergarten and I always make a little treat for everyone in his class for the holidays.  Of course, they have to be Stampin' Up! originals.  The kids always love it.  Well, since it is Easter, I figured little baskets filled with treats would be great.  I remembered seeing at one time a tutorial on splitcoast on making a basket out of a 6x6 piece of cardstock.  So I went to work and here is what I came up with.

Isn't that too stinking cute!  I am thinking of adding some embellishments, just not quite sure what yet. 
         I started with 6x6 piece of cardstock scored at 2 inches all the way around and rounded the corners.  Then cut to the intersections on the two score marks on the left and right sides of the square.  The handle is a 1/2 by 8 inch strip.  You then just fold at the score lines and attach the sides and handle with a brad.  I used the paper piercing tool to help get through that thick stack of cardstock to get the brad in.  As for the "grass" in the basket, I took a piece of lighter colored cardstock, ran it through the crimper, and the through a cross cut shredder.  Presto!  Homemade easter grass.  Of course my son has informed me that I must make some that are not pink for the boys.  Hehe!
