Color your own Easter basket with this fun Easter printable coloring page! A fun craft for any age and a cute way to gift something special.
Hello! I’m here with another Easter DIY – this time a fun coloring project you can do with kids or by yourself to relax! These Color-Your-Own Easter Baskets are available as a free printable. Simply print the file, color the basket in using colored pencils, markers or crayons, and you’ll be ready to assemble the box.
I tried this out with my kiddos and they loved coloring the boxes in! Once the boxes are finished they are ready to fill with Easter goodies! I filled mine with Easter grass, eggs and chocolate bunnies! These cute baskets would not only make a fun project to do with the kids but also make adorable little treat boxes! They are also the perfect size for a little cupcake! I’m sure your coworkers would love to find a little Easter surprise on their desk :)
Below is the quick tutorial which will show you how to assemble the boxes once they are colored. I used Scor-Tape (double-sided tape), but you can also use a glue stick or even Scotch tape if you need something quick with the kids.

Step by Step Tutorial
Step One: Download and print the Easter basket.
Print the Easter Basket on sturdy white paper. I use 110lb white paper for all of my treat boxes because it is much sturdier than regular printer paper.
Step Two: Color the boxes!
Once the Easter baskets are printed it’s time to color!! I used colored pencils for the two I colored in and my kids used a combination of colored pencil, crayon and marker :)
Step Three: Assemble the boxes.
After the treat boxes are colored in, it’s time to cut them out and assemble them! Start by cutting out the treat box and the handle. Once it is cut out, you can score along the score lines using a scoreboard and stylus, or fold by hand and really press down the creases.
Place Scor-Tape along the tabs or use a tape runner or glue stick. If you’re making these with kids, you can have them help you put glue along the tabs with a glue stick.
Attach the tabs to the other side of the box at all four corners.
Place adhesive on either end of the handle and then stick it inside the box.
My favorite part is how the corners all match up :) I drew this as one long basket so it was fun to see it come together as something 3D.
Here’s a quick look at what it looked like when I originally drew it – in one long line!
The treat box is finished! If you make this craft, I would love to see a picture! Everyone’s will look different so it would be fun to see! Share on Instagram or Facebook and tag @Craftingcheerfully or use the hashtag #craftingcheerfully
