June_basketI like to keep a file of fun small containers to make that just require a little paper & glue.  Here is one that I just recently came up with that recycles toilet paper rolls!  You can get three baskets per roll!  These little baskets can hold candy or another special treat.  They make great centerpieces, favors or gifts.  Customize them to suit your theme or the recipients color scheme!

Supplies:

Toilet paper roll tube

Super Jumbo Scalloped Circle Punch

Scalloped scissors

Brads

Instructions:

  1. Cut toilet paper tube into thirds.  Feel free to flatten it to do so.
  2. Cut strips of cardstock to wrap around outside & inside.  Adhere.
  3. Punch scalloped circle from cardstock.  Apply bead of clear drying glue around bottom of paper-covered tube.  Press firmly onto scalloped circle. (You may want to weight it down with something, such as a book, while it is drying.)
  4. Cut a strip of cardstock for the handle.  Mat and trim with scalloped scissors.  Attach to basket bottom with brads.
  5. As a finishing touch, add a tag tied with ribbon.
