Paper Plate Easter Basket
If you need a last minute Easter Basket and you have a paper plate and a few other basic supplies in the house, here is a quick and easy option for you.
Simply take your paper plate and, using a ruler, draw four 2 inch lines from the edge of the plate towards the center. I found that if I lined the ruler up so that it intersects across the edge of the inner circle (as highlighted in yellow in the picture below), this gave me a good sized basket.
Make sure your lines are parallel to each other so that you get a properly shaped basket. Cut along the lines.
Next, fold and crease the two longest sections of the plate.
Then fold and crease the remaining, shorter two sections of the plate.
Then fold and crease the overhanging flaps of the plate so that they are lined up along the bottom edge of the longer fold. Tape them into place.
Add a ribbon for a pop of color and to make your basket look complete. Now you are ready to fill it with whatever goodies you have on hand. Quick! Easy! Functional! And I think, cute!

Below you can see the setup inside the box for the completed and filled Easter Basket. I used a blue background from the Core Textured SBPrints collection and an oak board for the base.
