All the Easter bunnies are filling their baskets this weekend, and we hope they are hopping into your stores as well! As the Spring shopping season gets underway, retailers are always looking for fun and different ways to display our products. Show off all of those adorable trinkets and toppers you have to offer in your store with a cute basket made from left over wrapping paper! In just 5 simple steps you can create this fun little displayer that is perfect for Spring!
You will need a ruler or yard stick, scissors, exact-o knife, regular tape, double sided tape and spray mount. Make sure to grab some gift wrap too, I choose our Burlap wrapping paper!
Once all of your supplies are gathered, spray mount two sheets of paper together, making it double sided. After that is dry, measure out 11 strips that are 1″ wide and 15″ long, and 5 strips that are 1″ wide and 20″ long. On a flat surface weave the 15″ pieces together, I placed 5 horizontal and 5 vertical, the last strip will be used to make a handle at the end.
Now you can create your basket! Fold up the strips that are hanging out of the sides, they should all be at an even height. Use 4 of the 20″ strips to weave around the basket forming a square.
Once you have weaved all 4 strips, use double sided tape to place the last 20″ strip around the top edge. This will keep the top looking nice and clean!
Finally use the last 15″ strip to create the handle. Tape it down on each side and your basket is complete!
Fill about half of the basket with some of our crinkle or glimmer shred and then add your toppers and trinkets to it! The Felt Flower Pins look great, or try making a basket out of our Pastel Geode paper and fill it up with some Glimmer Eggs just in time for Easter! What design would you use for your basket?
