3D Easter Baskets and Handled Pillow Box

Good morning!  Today I am back with some Easter files!
Let's start off with my 3D Bunny Pillow Box with Handle...

This file is approximately 3-1/2" (6" with handle) x 5" x 1-1/4" as it comes, but it can be sized larger or smaller.  The file comes with the pillow box base (with slots), the handle piece, a handle mat, and the two bunny shapes.  It is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all the pieces and fold/bend on the score marks.
2.  Adhere the mat on the handle and then insert the handle into the slots.  You can change the way it bends depending on how you like it.
3.  Place adhesive on the pillow box tab then adhere it to the other side.
4.  Push in the ends to form the box.  Adhere the bunny pieces together with foam adhesive.
5.  Adhere the bunny to the center of the box.  Tie ribbon or twine on the handle to embellish.


Next up are my Easter Baskets!  
Each of the baskets come with two different inserts to hold eggs:
The smaller hole templates hold real (Grade A Large or Extra Large) eggs as well as plastic eggs that are approximately 2-1/2" tall x 1-1/2" wide.  The larger hole templates hold plastic eggs that are approximately 3-1/4" tall x 2" wide.

3D Tall Easter Basket
This basket is approximately 7-1/2" (with handle) x 6-3/4" x 2-1/2" and it comes with the basket base, bottom mat (to change inside color), the inside box mats, the handle, the handle mat, the scallop mats, and two dividers.  This box is perfect for little ones as the eggs are down toward the bottom of the box and they won't fall out easily :)
Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all the pieces.  Grab your basket base pieces and place adhesive on the tabs.
2.  Adhere your first two mat pieces inside to cover the slots, centering on each.
3.  Adhere the two pieces together.
4.  Adhere the other tab together with the side then pop the box up to form its shape.  Push the two bottom side tabs in.
5.  Then use adhesive to close the bottom of the box.
6.  Adhere your bottom mat in the bottom of the box.  I have mine match the color of the insert I am using.
7.  Cut out the insert you need.  Place adhesive on the four tabs.
8.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides.  (See step 12 before continuing on...)
9.  Insert the egg divider in the box.  Slide it in at an angle then push down and make sure the sides are flat (I push through the holes).
10. The inside of your box will look like this.
11. Adhere the handle mat to the handle and insert it into the tabs.
12. After I put the box together I realized that the tab pieces show on the inside and I didn't like the look.  If you do not like the look either, cut two more of the mats then adhere them over the other mats, hiding the tabs.  Then go back to step #9.
13. Your Basket should look like this now.
14-15.  These images show the egg insert with plastic eggs.

This basket is approximately 9-1/4" (with handle) x 6-3/4" x 3" and it comes with the basket base, the handles, the handle strips, the 3D Bow, and two dividers.  

1.  Cut out the basket base and place adhesive on the four side tabs.
2.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides.
3.  Place adhesive on the end of one handle piece.
4.  Adhere it on the second handle piece lining it up to the last slot as shown.
5.  Weave your strip pieces through the slots as shown.
6.  Your first piece should look like this.
7.  Weave your second one the same.  When you get to the middle it will look like this.
8.  Trim off the excess then glue down the pieces.
9.  Your handle should look like this now.
10. Apply adhesive under each slot on the basket.
11. Push your handle through the slot and adhere the tab piece at the bottom as shown.
12. Repeat for the other side.  Your basket should look like this now.
13. Cut out the divider you want and place adhesive on the four tabs.
14. Adhere the four tabs to the box sides to form then place adhesive on the two small ends and one each side of the long sides as shown.
15. Insert the divider and adhere to the basket base.  Assemble your 3D bow and attach it to the handle.  If you need help this tutorial is similar (http://jamielanedesigns.blogspot.com/2013/10/pretty-layered-bows.html). Then fill with eggs!

Here is the tutorial:
1.Cut out the base pieces.  Bend on the score lines as shown.
2. Place adhesive on one of the tabs and adhere the two pieces together.
