Die Cut Corner Basket

by Bożena Bodynek

Use die cuts to build the sides of this decorative basket.


  • Cardstock (Luxe Gold Cardstock from Heartfelt Creations used here)
  • Large circle die or other large background die (Heartfelt Creations Rounded Eyelet Window Die set used here)
  • Trimmer or die for basket handle (Heartfelt Creations Ticket and Tags Die set used here)
  • Die cutting machine
  • Strong adhesive (hot glue used here)
  • Ruler and pencil
  • Scoring tool
  • Scissors
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (used here: handmade paper asters from the Heartfelt Creations Wild Aster collection, ribbon, gauze, Stickles)


  1. Step 1

    Die cut two sides for the basket.

    The die used for the sample is 5.5” along the straight side. A similar sized circle die could be used (cut in 2), or experiment with other background or gatefold dies.

  2. Step 2

    Score two vertical lines, allowing 2.5” in the center section.

  3. Step 3

    Prepare a 2 7/8” square base. Score at 1/4” from each side.

  4. Step 4

    Cut tabs at the corners. Fold in the sides and glue to form a base.

  5. Step 5

    Connect the base to the sides, wrapping one side first, and then the other.

  6. Step 6

    Use a cardstock strip to make a handle. Adhere to the inside the basket where the side pieces overlap.

  7. Step 7

    Create a floral composition, or embellish as desired.

  8. Step 8

    Complete the project.

Just checking to make sure my tablet was working since there's no sound. Great video and fun project!

Wonderful idea! I may use this basket pattern to make small gifts for my music students during the Easter season.

This video was recorded without sound... this time our author's first language is not English, and this is how she felt most comfortable. Hopefully her demonstration paired with the instructions above will be clear enough. Thanks for watching!

You don't really need sound when the instructions are this clear!

There aren't any measurements for the handle, so I looked up the die used. The die measurement is 5.75" x .5", you need 2 pieces.
Really cute box, will make a great Easter basket.
