DIY Easter Basket Place Setting

A small Easter basket  awaits each guest at your holiday table. These baskets are made from a small decorative round or square  8"
 paper plate.

Follow the simple diorama below on how to make an Easter basket:

Use a ruler and light pencil to draw even lines on the front of the plate as shown.  Cut out 4 corners out, fold plate. 

Use of a x-acto knife and scoring technique will give you the best folding results.
Paper punch hole in each corner and tie with ribbon.

Voilà! Fill with your own treats.
