These printable Easter baskets are easy to glue together and just the right size for a single easter egg.

If you want to use the baskets as place holders for dinner, write the name of each guest on the handle and use as a place card at the dining table.
You could also fill them with small treats, like cinnamon hearts, after dinner mints, jelly beans or chocolate kisses.
Since you can print out these baskets at home, it’s a neat Easter project to do with younger children. Teachers might even like to use them for an elementary art class.
Printing Egg Basket Instructions:
Print out the basket(s) of your choice. Select a design you like from the eight thumbnails shown here. One click will open up the full size graphic ready for printing.
Assembling Your Paper Basket
Cut around the patterns carefully. Remember to leave tabs on the two sides without the handles. It’s important that you remember and cut around them or you won’t be able to glue the basket together.
Fold up each side of the basket with the tabs folded to the inside.
Apply glue to the outside of the tabs, which then fit on the inside of the adjoining edge. A glue stick works well.
Glue the handle together at the top, overlapping just a little. If you overlap too much, an egg won’t fit in the basket.
Fill with goodies and use as desired.
