Maria has a suggestion for the Grand Treat Basket: "since I do not have the Grand Calibur, I had to come up with an alternative.
Grand Treat Basket-Option 2
Materials: compass, cardstock, graph paper, ruler, scoring tool.
Decide the diameter of the circle you want to draw. For example, a four-inch diameter circle will produce a basket big enough to fit two-three pieces of hard candy. Draw a circle on graph paper using the compass. Divide it into thirds along the diameter, trace lines. Rotate the circle 90 degrees, and repeat division into thirds. Again, re-trace lines. Trim graph paper circle closely and carefully. Make a notch where the lines end to use as reference for the cardstock circle. Draw identical diameter circle on cardstock. Use reference circle to draw lines, score all four of them. Carefully trim cardstock circle using big scallop scissors. Follow original directions after step 4 to assemble basket.
Grand Treat Basket-Option 3
Cut a square from cardstock. Divide it into thirds, both length and widthwise. This will produce nine identical squares, three per row, in three rows. Score all lines. Follow directions from step 4 in original directions. Fold to assemble basket.
For a twist in assembling the basket, instead of folding the two flaps overlapping one another aligned with the basket base, just bring them together to overlap in their corners and adhere. Repeat with the other side. This will create an open basket rather than a box-like one."
