Ingredients
  

  • Felt sheet 9”x12” in charcoal
  • Felt scraps in white, light pink and dark pink (or any coordinating colors of your choosing)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Easter Egg Basket Printable
  • Glue gun with clear hot glue sticks

Instructions
 

  • Print off template.
  • Using fabric scissors, cut the large box pattern and basket handle in charcoal felt. Clip all four inner corners of the box pattern. Put aside.
  • Cut out the egg pattern in white felt.
  • Cut out the decorative pieces (stripes and zig zag) in any color of your choosing.
  • Preheat the hot glue gun.
  • Align the decorative egg pieces onto the cut egg shape for placement. Working with one decorative piece at a time, apply glue to the backside of the stripe and press onto the egg. Repeat for the other stripe and zigzag cut pieces.
  • Turn the prepared egg face down and apply glue to the backside. Working quickly and carefully, press the egg onto the top section of the cut box pattern as shown. Take care to not place it too low on the one side.
  • To assemble the box, work one corner at a time. Add a line of hot glue to one cut corner edge as shown and overlap with the other cut piece. Press together to form corner.
    Repeat for remaining 3 corners.
  • Add a bit of glue to the ends of the long rectangular piece and attach it to the inside of felt box to form the basket handle.
  • Fill the finished felt basket with treats or alternatively you can fill a little plastic bag with treats and place it inside the felt box.
