Eid Goodie Gift Basket Tutorial

Every year we go to an Eid party and celebrate with our lovely friends.  This year we’ll be at a park and we thought it might be fun to make these picnic basket goodie bags for the kids.  They are so inexpensive to make and only require paper and two tools!

12 x 12 double sided scrapbook paper
Popsicle stick

Cut the 12 x 12 paper to 8 1/2 x 11.  Be sure to keep the pieces as you’ll need the leftover long piece for the handle.  Fold the paper in half  and then each of the halves you’ve fold again in half.

Turn your paper in the other direction and do the same thing.  You’ll end up with 16 squares on your paper.

With the short end towards you, bring the top and bottom flaps into the center.  Then you’ll want to fold each end down to form triangles on the four corners.

Fold over the two center flaps toward the top and bottom.

Grab the pieces that you just folded and pull your basket open.

Take the long piece and fold it in half the long way.

This piece will be your handle, so you’ll need to staple it down to the sides of the box.

Your Eid basket is done and ready to use.  Just fill with goodies and give it out to the kids!
