3D Paper Easter Baskets

Today I am excited to share this quick little paper craft courtesy of my mom, Christine Wolzl.  These simple paper baskets would be a fun little craft to do with kids and are so easy to customize using your favourite color or patterned paper.  They would be great at a kids party for favour baskets or filled with treats as part of the place settings at Easter dinner.
