Paper Easter Basket



This Paper Easter Basket from Debbie Buckland is a great craft for kids to make with their family.  With some basic folding techniques, this Easter basket art project comes together with ease.  Kids can decorate however they'd like before using it to find hidden eggs!

 Paper Easter Basket


  • 3 sheets of 12x12 cardstock, cut into 1"x12" strips
  • 1 1"x12" paper strip for handle
  • Adhesive
  • Stapler (optional)


  1. Using your strips, weave 9 strips across and 4 down.
