Hello! I’m here with another Easter craft – this time a coloring project to create your own Easter basket! These Color-Your-Own Easter Baskets are a great craft project for any age. Coloring is so relaxing and it’s so fun to create something from a coloring page. These baskets are easy to make, simply print the file, color the basket in using colored pencils, markers or crayons, and then assemble the box.

I tried this out with my kiddos and they loved coloring the boxes! 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.

Supplies Needed

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Download and print the Easter basket.

Print the Easter Basket on sturdy white cardstock. I use 110lb white paper for all of my treat boxes, but anything around 80lbs will work well.

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 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 handle. Once cut out, score along the score lines using a scoreboard and stylus, or fold by hand and really press down the folds.

Place double-sided tape along the tabs or use a tape runner or glue stick. If you’re making these with kids, you can have them help by using a glue stick on the tabs.

Attach the tabs to form the box. Next, place adhesive on either end of the handle on the colored side. Attach the handle edges inside the box on opposite sides.

My favorite part is how the drawing matches up at the corners. 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!
