Quick Craft: DIY Modern Easter Baskets

kraft&mint modern Easter Basket

Easter is only a week away! This weekend I put together the kid’s Easter baskets. They were all playing outside in the cul-de-sac while the weather was great. I had not planned to put these together until the evening, but when the window of opportunity presents itself when I can craft without interruptions, I have to grab it! Please take a look at materials and more photos depicting all three baskets.

These were super easy to make! The Kraft container is from the dollar section at Target. They have them in stock and cost $3 apiece. I designed a set of tags and wrapping paper, used washi and packing tape and sticker letters. What do you think? I haven’t finished filling them out but so far I’m pretty happy how they turned out!

Easter gift tags! These are quite big, so when you print them, you can scale them down a bit ;)

    Hey Girl! It’s Deonna from the Child at Heart blog. I was just stopping by to say hello! I am pinning these for later. I need to put my son’s together today and might just use these tags. These are a nice break from the traditional baskets. I am doing a great spring necklace giveaway and would love for you to come by and enter to win :) Have a joyful week!
