Easter baskets come in all shapes and sizes. Large ones are great for an Easter Egg Hunt or for putting out for the Easter Bunny to fill. I was curious about the origins of the Easter Basket. I really wasn't too surprised to learn that Easter Baskets originate from Germany (we get a lot of our Christmas traditions from Germany after all). It's most likely that Easter
Baskets come from German folklore involving the Easter Hare, who would leave candies, colored eggs and other goodies for kids. Sound familiar?
Not only do Easter baskets come in different shapes and sizes, but they're also made of different things, too! I used a white berry basket to make this one.
I really like the look of the double handle. I wanted them to be at slightly different heights. That was easy to do by adhering them together and tilting the top one just a little bit. Then I just stapled them to the berry basket.
All the little bows are made with a bow builder punch. They are adorable and so fast! Curving the pieces with a bone folder really helps.
I use glue dots, but I also put a little dot of liquid glue, too, just for good measure!
I've been buying organic free range eggs. I love the pretty brown color. They look so cute dressed with mini bows!
