Easter Treat Holder – 60 Second Tutorial Video
By Katelyn Grosart
“I'm excited that this month, I'm back sharing another 60 second tutorial with you. Although it can be challenging, Graphic 45's products are perfect for achieving this type of project. So, by using the Place In Time – Deluxe Collectors Edition, and an ATC Black Policy Envelope, I was able to create this simple but quick and pretty treat holder, easy for anyone to recreate at home. I hope that you'll enjoy my video tutorial of my Easter Treat Holder as well as a few tips and tricks.” ~Katelyn
Tip: You only need to use one sheet of paper to create this treat holder.
Tip: Using the ATC policy envelope, it allows you to tuck a treat into and saves space on the dinner plate.
Graphic 45 Supplies:
Ranger Ink: Vintage Photo Distress and a blending tool with foam
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: 3D Foam Squares and EZ Runner

Place in Time Easter Basket
By Sandy Trefger
Tip: To create a paper Easter basket, first, decide on the size of your basket, then cut a piece of cardstock for the size of the bottom plus 1.5”–2” for each side. Score all four sides of the cardstock for the height of the sides of your basket, and then make 4 cuts to create flaps. Assemble with glue attaching the flaps to the inside. Add a cardstock handle and decorate. Colored tissue paper shredded or cut into strips makes wonderful basket filler.
