Maybe I should have majored in basket weaving, because I’ve become a down with a chronic case of basketmakingitis. Primary symptom: sufferers attempt to turn any and everything into a basket. Yep. I’ve got it. Bad.

How about you? Are you making baskets this year? If you are, consider yourself lucky…you’ve just stumbled on a goldmine. The sort of goldmine that has exactly zero gold but tons of baskets. A basketmine.

To get started with my handmade basket projects, I’m combining my love of basket making with another love of mine: cupcakes.

NOTE: To create a basket from the mini cupcake wrapper die, use the largest flower from Build-a-Flower die collection in place of the doily.

Now for the yummy part!

Of course, you could create these little baskets and fill them with traditional Easter candy. I, however,  opted for the cupcake route. I added green frosting to the tops to mimic grass and added a banner flag topper along with a springtime-y flower. Almost too cute to eat, right? Almost. Those cupcakes definitely got ate up.
