Easter is less than a week away!  I created these mini Easter baskets for my daughters to sit next to their breakfast plates.  They will contain little treats to hold my kids over until the big egg hunt.

I cut the kraft cardstock baskets with my Silhouette.  I also cut an extra scallop border out of Therm O Web iCraft sheets so I could add glitter to the edges of the basket.

I then folded the basket attaching the side together with Therm O Web Super Tape.  I also added ribbon to the handle with Super Tape.  I attached the handle to the basket with brads so the handle could swing up and down.

To create the bunnies I ironed Therm O Web Heat N Bond Lite to my fabric.  Then I cut the fabric bunnies with the Silhouette.  I adhered the bunnies to a paper bunny slightly larger than the fabric one with Therm O Web Super Stik glue stick.  This just gave the fabric some stability.

I attached the bunnies, ribbon flowers, pennants, and buttons with Therm O Web Zots to decorate the baskets.  Oh, and to get fun and ecofriendly Easter grass, shred scraps of patterned paper with a plain old office shredder!
