Baskelopes~Easter goody envelope baskets Tutorial

I'm a couple days late putting my tutorial up. I apologize! We have been super busy with Spring clean up, my son's sports practices and getting into the swing of all our Spring activities. We are also planning our Spring/Summer trips to FL & NM & starting the process of getting our passports for a trip later this year that I am taking with my daughter.

Here is the picture tutorial I promised! I want to Thank my husband for letting me use his hands in one step while I took the pictures. he is a good sport! I think you will find this is a super quick & easy project to make! You can leave it simple or really dress it up with punches, die cuts & embellishments!

Materials needed:
Bone folder
Paper cutter/ruler
A2 envelope (medium SU envelope)
sticky strip/adhesive

 Click on collage to make bigger!

Step 1~ Seal envelope & add adhesive to corners if needed to seal completely
Step 2~Stamp a background image on BOTH sides of envelope (I used Boho Backgrounds with Almost Amethyst ink)
Step 3~Score both long sides and across bottom @ 1 inch, fold well along score lines

Step 4~Cut 1 3/4" across by 2 3/4" down from top on both sides to form your handle (top is the short side NOT scored)
Step 5~ Slide hand inside basket and push bottom up at score lines to form basket. This will create 2 flaps on the bottom.

Step 6~ put sticky strip on flaps as shown and fold under to bottom of basket as shown
Step 7~ Decorate as desired!

Have a RESTFUL day!
