Paper Easter Basket Made With Cricut

Wow! How are we already preparing for Easter? These holidays come so quickly, that it’s almost difficult to keep up!

For this blog post, I found a very cute paper Easter basket template on Cricut Design Space that is the perfect blank canvas to add extra details to and make it your own.

Here are the materials you’ll need for this project:

Before we get to the step by step instructions, I want to note that even though we are using heavy weight cardstock, this basket will probably not hold up to an intense Easter egg hunt adventure! Personally, I picture this being used at the kids table in place of a name card.

Alright, let's get started. If you’d like to make a basket the same size as the one pictured, adjust the basket file’s measurements to 14.692” wide x 16.134” tall. Remember to load your scoring stylus or wheel into your machine and hit that go button! If you don't have a Cricut, there are lots of online templates for Easter baskets as well.

The next steps are simple, as all you have left to do once your basket pieces have been cut is to fold the scored lines and glue the tabs to each side. Then, fold your bottom pieces in to close the basket and move on to placing the handle ends through the slits at the top.

To personalize my basket, I added a name plaque to the front, as well as a little “Easter Greetings” tag to the handle. I filled my basket with “Easter grass” from the craft store, but if you have scrap pieces of paper and a shredder, I’d recommend making your own paper grass! Don’t forget those eggs filled with sweet treats, stickers, or even money! Watch your kiddos faces light up to see what you have created just for them!

I hope you all found this project fun and will give it a go this Easter holiday! Wouldn’t this be a great craft activity for your kiddos to do, too? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Thank you and happy crafting!

    Hi, Mary!

    I checked the file again and it is correct #M331DD. I’m sorry you are having trouble locating it. I know design space files can be case sensitive, so if you didn’t type it exactly how you see it, it may not work.

    Hi! so cute! but I cannot find that file name in Cricut Design space. Can you check it again?
