We’re throwing it back to spring of 2016 with this clever take on a Template Studio gift box. We just the transformation from box to basket with a few simple modifications. Check it out!
Hello We R fans! Amanda here today. I think Easter baskets are so much fun. They can be made out of all kinds of different materials—wicker, fabric, plastic—to name a few. With the Template Studio, you can make a full size Easter basket out of poster board, too!
With a quick and easy modification to the Template Studio box and you can create an Easter basket that you can stuff to the brim with sweets and treats. With the Template Studio, you can create Easter baskets big or…extra big! And the Designer Poster Board makes it easy to customize your Easter basket, too.
This Easter basket is about 5 ½”x5 ½”X3 ½” and fits a bunch of large and medium Easter eggs. You can also stuff it with chocolate rabbits or any of your other favorite Easter treats.
The DIY Party Fringe Tape is perfect for embellishing your Easter Basket and it comes in so many yummy jelly bean colors.
Starting with a piece of 15”x15” designer poster board, follow the Template Studio instructions for the box through Step 11. This will make a basket that is 5.6”x5.6”x3.6”
Rather than using the scoring tool in Step 12 of the box making instructions, use the cutting blade to cut the flaps off the top of the box. Use scissors to cut the remainder of the flap completely. This will leave you with a box with an open top.
This is what your poster board will look like after you have cut the flaps off of the box.
Use a tiny stapler to secure the inside flaps to the inside walls of the box.
Create a handle by stapling a strip of poster board to the inside of the box. Trim your basket with fringe or other fun embellishments.
