Easter baskets

I wanted to make something for the  grandchildren so I googled woven easter baskets and found lots of ideas, but I just loved these because they display the eggs so nicely and  are simple to decorate.

I made mine with 10 x 1/2 inch strips of card and wove a mat, then you gather up the ends and staple.  It's harder than you think - the mat falls to bits while you're trying to hold it! but by number three, you start to get the hang of things.   ;-D
If you want bigger baskets just use more strips or make them wider.

Stamp: Hero Arts
Flower punch: Martha Stewart
tulle, tissue, Stickles, distress inks (edge of flowers).
