Paper Easter Basket Instructions

Step 1: Upload Easter Basket SVG File to Cricut Design Space

Upload the Easter basket SVG file to Cricut Design Space. For help with uploading SVG files, check out my tutorial here.

Click on “Ungroup” to ungroup all of your layers. There are lines on top of the basket layers. These will be your score lines so change the operation of these lines to score.

Note: If you are not using a scoring tool then you will delete these lines instead.

Then select the score line and the layer underneath and select “Attach” to attach the score line where it will score.

Step 2: Glue Scrapbook Paper

Locate which side is the outside of your basket and glue the scrapbook paper to the outside.

Note: Make sure that both basket pieces can attach to form a box shape using the tab pieces before gluing the scrapbook paper down.

Step 3: Assemble the Basket

Assemble your basket by creating a box shape, but with an open top. Start by folding in on all the score lines. And then glue the side tab pieces to the inside to attach the sides together. Glue the bottom tab pieces to the bottom to attach the bottom together.

When the basket shape is assembled, glue the rectangle pieces to the bottom of the inside of your basket.

Step 4: Assemble the Bunny/Chick

To assemble the bunny, start by gluing the grey layer on top of the pink layer. Than glue the black layer on with the white layer on top. Don’t forget to add the tooth!

Note: Before gluing the bunny together, line it up with the Easter basket to make sure you are gluing everything on the correct side.

To assemble the bow, add glue to the middle circle and bring one of the circles and place it on top. Add glue to the top of that circle and bring the other circle in and place it on top. Hold it together for a few seconds to let it set.

To assemble the baby chick, start by gluing the black layer on top of the white layer. Then add the yellow layer on top and then the beak. Add your egg shell pieces and then the feet on top.

Note: You can use foam dots or foam tape to give the egg shell and feet a 3 dimension effect.

Step 5: Glue Bunny/Chick to the Basket Front

Next, glue the bunny or the chick to the front of the Easter basket. Fill with Easter grass and your favorite Easter treats for a super cute gift that everyone will love.
