Are you ready for today’s project? This Valentine’s day idea is so easy that you can make it even with younger kids.
If you copy just the outlines of the basket, you will be able to use it also for other events such as Mother’s day.
DIY N. 23
BASKET HEART LACE
scissors – glue or tape – paper cutter/blade – printer (optional, you can also print your PDF File at your local print shop) – thick paper/card stock (optional, you can also print your PDF File at your local print shop) – pen (optional, for writing your messages) – single hole puncher (optional, you can make your own holes using a paper cutter) – ribbon/string (optional, for a stronger Mini Gift basket handle) – inkless ball point pen/blunt tipped tool (optional, for easier folding/scoring) – pdf template (download below)
Open Mini Gift basket & Gift tag’s PDF File in Adobe Reader and print out on cardstock or thicker paper stock using your printer (or you can print the PDF File at your local print shop). Gather all the materials needed to make the Mini Gift basket.
Cut out the Mini Gift basket Template following the cutting lines.
Using the back of your paper cutter/blade or using an inkless ball point pen, score along the folding lines. Scoring means lightly dragging your back of blade or pen across the folding lines to make folding easier.
Fold according to the folding lines, make sure you fold all the side flaps of the Mini Gift Basket.
Apply glue or tape to the four side flaps of the Mini Gift Basket Template.
Cut the Mini Gift Basket handle and place some glue or tape on both ends of the handle.
With the glue or tape, stick one end of handle to center top area of the Mini Gift Basket and repeat the same for the handle’s other end.
Cut out the gift tags.
Using a single hole puncher, punch a hole in each gift tag.
Write your messages on the tags and attach them to your basket using some ribbon or string.
