Easter Basket


A quick and clever handicraft idea: a decorative basket made with the Pelifix Stick.

It’s so easy:
  1. Print out the download (we recommend using 170g/m2 coloured paper). Cut out the basket and the handle.

  1. Fold the basket cut-out on the lines indicated backwards and forwards.

  1. Cut the dotted lines to the middle.

  1. Fold the outer left-hand side upwards (45°).

  1. Fold and crease the whole right-hand side upwards (45°).

  1. Using the Pelifix Stick, glue the sides together on the at the blue markings.

  1. Securely glue the handle to the outside of the basket in the middle of the side parts.

  1. Then apply Pelifix to the remaining parts of the outer flaps.

Interior view: This is the way the basket should look on the inside.
  1. Fold the outer flaps upwards and glue these to the inner walls.

Fix a bow on the outside of the basket to cover the handle joints: Cut a piece of gift ribbon of approximately 20 cm length and tie a bow then glue this over the joint using Pelifix.

 


Using Pelifix the joints are camouflaged with coloured ribbon.

Of course, you can vary the colour of the basket and the matching ribbon.
