This free Craft project shows you how to make a simple but elegant paper basket that can be used to give gifts, hangup as decorations or much much more.
Print the oval template on cardstock. Cut out and trace onto patterned papers.
Using scissors, cut ovals from striped and white floral papers,
and use scallop-edge scissors to cut ovals from blue papers.
Fold the ovals in half.
To make the inside pocket, fold blue ovals and bring together,
overlapping ends and making a tip at the bottom, creating a heart shape.
Take the striped and white floral ovals and align layer over
the scalloped pocket and adhere.
Punch holes to front and on the back top center of pocket.
Cut a length of blue ribbon approximately 14".
Fold in half, and finish the ends with knots.
