Bunny Baskets

I hope you don't mind my unscheduled blogging break. The craziness of March really took it out of me I think! I topped it all off with a Launch Party for the new mini on the 1st of April. I had 40 lovely ladies welcome in the new mini with me...lots of fun!
I always like to make a little thank you gift for them, so this year I used that lovely Sale-a-Bration DSP (I'm missing it already, but thankfully "Twitterpated" has been helping to soothe my soul) to make these cute little Egg Baskets:


I know it's too late for this Easter but these could be used for any treat really, not just Easter, and they are so so super easy to make. If you use DSP, there's no measuring, cutting or scoring! Just take your Scallop Square Die (you must own that one, surely?? If not, why not??), and cut out a scallop square.
TIP: Using DSP, you can cut 8 at once!
Now fold inwards at the 2 scallop mark on one side. Repeat on the opposite side. Fold inwards at the 3 scallop mark on the other 2 sides. Use scissors to snip the 4 shortest score lines, and fold inwards to form the box shape. Snail adhesive does the trick to stick the sides together. If you are making these from cardstock, I would use a stronger adhesive and also pre-score before folding. 
My handle is 19 x 2cm, and I used a Mini brad to hold it in place.
TIP: If you cut the handles first, you can get 4 of these baskets from one sheet of DSP.
These fit one of those "hunting" eggs, or a few small eggs perfectly.
Isn't the punch art bunny cute? I CaSEd the idea from the very clever Mary Fish HERE
