Plan and prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.
Easter basket creation. Cut a piece of card stock to 6 x 6 inches. Use a ruler to fold the edge of the card stock upwards at 1.5 inches. Then, fold all the edges up 1.5 inches all the way around. Use your scissors or a utility knife to cut diagonally at the corners from the outer corner to where the fold crease meets. Push the sides up, folding corners so that you create a cube. Secure with pieces of tape.
Easter basket decoration. Once the cube (your basket) is created, you can then decorate the entire outside of the box using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Silver Bubble Dots. Create the top edge detail by applying Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Gold on half off the top of the basket. Trim the corners and cover the inside of the basket using the same pattern of tape.
Easter basket handle. To create a handle simply cut a strip of card stock about 1.2 inches wide and 9 inches in length, and cover it with Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Gold. Secure the handle to the basket using tape.
Easter egg design. To design the egg, use a ruler and your cutting mat to cut your Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Gold Vintage Rose into randomly sized triangles. Apply the triangles in a mosaic pattern to your egg. Be sure to leave a blank space on the egg to add the guest’s name with a black felt tip marker.
EXPERT TIP: Be creative! You can change up the tape choices to express your unique style and match your household décor.
