These paper baskets are adorable and so easy to make! They are the perfect way to give a gift.
You can make them with a single square sheet of cardstock, but I use 2 for the color blocked effect!
I love these color combos. I love the pink and green...it's like watermelon!
There are so many options for this simple craft!

You will need Cardstock Scrapbook Paper...
I used these bright colors from DCWV.
Their paper is amazing--and available at craft stores like Joann.
It's such great quality and those colors are irresistible!
The doubled paper gives it a amazing two toned look,
but also makes it incredibly sturdy.
You can score with a ruler and stylus too.
(this can be done with any square paper, it just needs to be scored in thirds)

It's basically a perfect tic-tac-toe grid.
I just eye balled it.

It's okay if it's a little off...or if you have to go over the same line a couple times.
Then fold the diagonal lines in toward the center.
The combo of colors is so bright and cheery!
I love using an oversized ribbon. These are 1.25 inch and look so great!
These would make great party favor baskets.
Table settings for an event, or even centerpieces.
Great for a Welcome to the neighborhood gift!
Surprisingly they hold a lot of goodies too!
I love them and want to keep them all as decorations with their bright
