Happy Easter with Simple Stories Hip Hop Hooray

Hi there, it's Anna back with you today. Since my last post a lot has changed, but I hope you are all staying safe and well and making the most of this time. Scrapbooking and crafting is a great hobby to have at the moment isn't it?
This month I'm going to be working with the Simple Stories Hip Hop Hooray collection, which is a combined Easter and Spring themed collection.
As its Easter weekend, I decided to make some Easter baskets. I've made three different sized baskets and to start, all you need is a square piece of cardstock or patterned paper. My square sizes were 30x30cm for the large basket, 21x21cm for the medium basket and 15x15cm for the small basket.

The next step is to score the card creating nine equal squares...

...and now cut along the lines as shown in the picture, up to the middle lines.

Now you are able to fold the card into the basket shapes. I have used two styles as shown below. Once you have the shape you like, secure it with adhesive.

Now to decorate! I have used a combination of the Simple Stories Hip Hop Hooray patterned papers, chipboard stickers, element stickers as well as cardstock. I made handles for the basket using strips of cardstock and/or patterned paper.

And finally, here are the finished baskets filled with eggs ready for Easter Sunday!

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter, have a lovely weekend!
Take care, stay safe and enjoy your crafting time!
See you soon.
