Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Easter Craft Shapes
Once you have the Easter Basket template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will have so much fun making this easy Easter Basket craft!
I recommend having a basket that is already put together so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- Start by gluing the white background to the top of the basket – It makes it look like there is a basket handle.
- Glue on the bottom pocket. Make sure you don’t put any glue near the white part of the basket.
- Line up the bottom part of the basket and glue it down.
- Add glue to the sides of the pocket to make sure and seal the edges.
- Next, glue the bow to the top of the Easter basket.
- Finally, put your paper eggs into the basket pocket.
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
