Tuesday Tutorial

Hi everyone.. Dawn here for your Tuesday Tutorial!
This week I wanted to share with you a tiny little Easter basket I made using the Leah Bunny Digital Image.
I also used the Some Bunny Loves You rubber stamp. 
These are all available at the Whimsie Doodles Store.

First you take a 6 X 6 piece of cardstock (I used double sided).

You score it every two inches all the way around. I drew in the score lines so you could easily see.

Next you want to cut into the middle two score lines until you reach the middle scored line like this.
Now leave the middle square as is for now and cut the outer two squares into thirds. After doing that you need to cut the middle square into a triangle.. Shown below...


I then took my outer two strips and snipped off about a half inch so that it would fold in nicely.
Now you want to use a strong adhesive and add it to the ends of the above strips.
Fold all the edges up behind the middle triangle and secure. 
Then I cut out a 1 in circle and folded it in half and added it over all the points to hide them. 
I added a 1in X 6 in strip of paper for the handles. I added grass and Leah and now you have a cute little basket. I hope you will give this a try!  To color in Leah's bunny suit, I used the paper piecing tutorial that Linda created a few weeks ago. You can check it out  HERE.

This basket is so cute but I think there's a step missing...after you cut the two lines up to the 2" score line on both sides, what is the width of the strips on all the end corners? Those are the strips that are to be cut down 1/2" except for the strip closest to the center triangle. Thank you! Hugs, Cami

Very cute I cant wait to try this! Thanks for sharing

Yes Cami I agree - there are no instructions for what width to cut the strips before we trim off half an inch.
But a truly lovely project. I'm sat with my 7 year daughter now trying to make one - I'm just going to try cut three strips as evenly across the 2" square as possible.
Thank you for this project.

Karen said...

I have just made this basket with my daughter - and we cut the strips every 5 notches between the inch markers - so the two outer strips were dead on 5 each, and the two inner strips were just slightly wider.
The whole basket has come together nicely.
Thanks so much for this tutorial - what a thorough pleasure!

I am so sorry. I just divided it into thirds.. It is 2 inches for each little square. Each cut is equal.. It just looks like they are not in the picture.. I will go back and edit it.. Thanks so much for asking..:)

Dawn B. said...

I corrected it.. If anyone is still have trouble let me know.. Late night posting...:)
