Happy Easter!

Matthew 28: 5-6  "And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.  He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.  Come, see the place where the Lord lay"

I hope everyone has enjoyed a great Easter Sunday.  I wanted to share some Easter baskets I made for my son's teachers at the day care center.  They had their class Easter egg hunt on Thursday, and I wanted to give the teachers a little gift.

I made these using the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge.  I used the fit-to-page option for a 12x12 mat on my Expression 2, so the baskets were cut just shy of 5.5".  The baskets are quickly and easily put together.  There are two pieces to the baskets: the basket itself and the handle.  I used the scoring tool, which made folding very easy.  A little tucking here, a little taping there, insert the handle and you are done!  I then added some Easter grass, a caramel egg, and some jelly beans.  The teachers loved them!
