With Easter now coming into the rear view, It’s time to have fun playing with those Easter layouts! We’ve loved using the Tiny Egg Hunt Accessory Set, and seeing people in the community having a blast with this set as well! The great thing about Tiny Egg Hunt is the detail work! With the Doodle Sheet, you can add fun designs to your eggs, basket, and bunny! If you want to go the extra mile, you could weave it as well! Weaving your Easter basket is a fun way to add texture to your page, as well as an enjoyable pass time for people who like detail work (is that you? Let us know in the comments!). Without further ado, let’s jump in (or hop like a bunny…)

Step One: Prepare

For this simple project, you’re going to need the basket from the Tiny Egg Hunt Accessory set and some brown cardstock paper. Trace and cut the basket out of the brown paper and using the scraps, you’re going to cut out 14 strips of paper.

Four of those strips will be going horizontal, so cut them 3 inches long and about 1/4 inch wide. The other ten will be going vertical, so cut them 2 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. If you want a more rustic look to your basket, go ahead and use distress ink to outline the edges on both your basket, and strips of paper.

Step Two: Weave

Gather your strips together and lay out your four horizontal strips. You can either weave separately and then lay it across your easter basket for reference or weave across your easter basket from the begining; it depends on what is easier for you. Then begin to weave by tucking in your ten vertical strips of paper behind your horizontal ones, alternating the pattern every other strip.

Step Three: Adhere and Trim

Once you’ve mastered the weave, go ahead and gently adhere it down where the horizontal and vertical strips meet. Then line up the top of the weave with the top of your basket and adhere it down so that it stays. Then you’re going to trim off the excess, following the edge of the basket (if you didn’t use all your strips, that’s ok!). Last, but not least, using the basket Designer Template from the Tiny Egg Hunt Accessory set, trace just the rounded rim of the basket out on the brown cardstock and cut it out! Then layer it on top of the weave where the rim would be, and adhere it on as well! This will hide any mistakes you made near the top and add a 3D layer to your basket!
