Egg in a Basket boxes

I know eggs are egg shaped, not rectangles. But rectangles are a whole lot easier to fold and glue together. Each of the little eggs when printed at 300 dpi is 2 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide x 1.5 inches deep. The basket box they are sitting in is 1 inch tall by 3.25 inches deep and wide. So you'll need to print 4 eggs to fit the box and there is some waste card stock. What I do with bigger waste pieces is set them aside for notes, white backgrounds for small elements in other projects and use them as paint and glue palettes. Watch for more sets of these in the coming weeks if you like this set, and I will be posting this template in my Etsy store.
As usual, the tabs are large enough to use double stick tape or a glue roller to assemble. 2 sets, the one pictured above and a set that can be colored. Click on the images for the full sized versions.

And just because I liked how they looked, here are 2 basketweave tiles that you can re-color and use in your own craft projects.
