We have less than a week before the Easter Bunny arrives, but that’s plenty of time to make up a few of these mini paper Easter baskets for someone special in your life.

And since Easter is not really about bunnies anyway, these are a great way to share the true message of Easter.

I made these little cones the same way I made these May Baskets I showed you last year. But instead of scrapbook paper, I used sheet music. Handel’s “I Know My Redeemer Liveth,” is a great choice for Easter. {Click here for a link to print it for free.}

I used 2 sheets for one cone. I just trimmed the excess white around the borders, then glued them back to back with a glue stick to get a two-sided sheet.

Then, I rolled it onto a cone and used hot glue to hold it in place.

A couple of holes punched on the sides with a strand of jute makes a great handle.

Then, I glued on a tiny stem of calla lilies. (Find these mini stems with the wedding supplies at Hobby Lobby.)

Mini stamps on a scrap of scrapbook paper made a “Happy Easter” banner. I use my mini stamps for so many projects! I highly recommend these for all crafters. I got mine atHobby Lobby a few years ago. Click here for a similar set.

I stuffed the inside with this craft paper filler…

And then added a few speckled malted milk eggs…

One last mini banner made from more scrapbook paper glued onto a bamboo skewer proclaims what we know to be true on Easter and every other day of the year.

Take one to a neighbor, make them with your kids, or give them to your Easter dinner guests. I hope this inspires you! But more than that, I hope it helps to remind you of the hope we have in Christ, whose death and resurrection we celebrate at Easter, and rejoice in every day of the year.
