DIY: Handmade Baskets: Strawberry Easter Eggs

March 21, 2013

IMG_1039Think outside the box. Or, better yet…outside the basket. Who says that Easter baskets have to include bunnies and carrots? Not me.  It’s crazy easy to turn traditional plastic eggs into cute strawberries! This idea would definitely work for summertime too – just grab a bunch of eggs in the after-Easter sale and save them for you berry sweet soirees!

I tucked mine into the berry basket and added a handle with Ocean Tides cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I finished off the set with a itty-bitty sign stamped from the Clear & Simple Stamps Perfect Harvest Fillers Stamp Set.
