Easter Cupcake Case Baskets

Whenever I go into a homewares store (which is rare now I have kids) I often have a browse through the sales bucket and I always find pretty cupcake cases. I usually buy a pack or two to put in the back of the pantry so that I have cases ready to bake cupcakes for a Birthday or put snack foods in for a party. While I was rearranging my pantry, I thought about how I could utilize my extra stash of cupcake cases for Easter and came up with making Easter cupcake case baskets.

I used what I had sitting at home in the craft box to make this craft, but you can easily buy these materials from a discount store or craft store. The eggs and chocolate chicks were from Aldi.

1. Use a single hole punch to punch a hole on each side of the cupcake case. To make it easier to punch the holes adjacent to each other, punch the seam first.

2. Thread your ribbon through the first whole and knot it. Pipe cleaners work well too.

4. Cut up some tissue paper and scrunch it up in the base of the cupcake case.
