Easter Baskets

These are the Easter baskets my kids are getting this year.

I love these clear paint cans. This is the gallon sized and you can order them at Paper Wishes.

It was a bit hard to get the paper inside because the paper can actually go up under the metal lip (you can see that I didn't quite get mine up there!). The paper on the inside needs to be about 6 1/2 inches wide for a really tight fit. I cut mine at 6 inches for this one and then added a scallop border.

You also want to make sure that you make your "label" completely before you put it in. I put this one in and then had to take it out again so I ended up tearing the paper in a couple of spots.

My son's basket I used lots of chocolate bunny stickers because, being 14, he's not much into flowers and cute little animals!!

My daughter got the frilly flowers and lots of ribbon basket.

Both of these were very easy, I didn't do any stamping so they went together very quickly. I still have to decorate the lid, although I may leave it blank. I haven't made up my mind yet.
