Easy treat baskets {with a free printable template}

I spotted these little DIY treat baskets on Better Homes & Gardens, where they’re being billed as a 4th of July project, but I think they’re perfect for any party! They’re too cute and so easy – they’re made from double-sided scrapbook paper that’s glued at the base and then held together with threaded ribbon or rickrack.

Now, this is the kind of project that you may not need a template for, as BHG doesn’t provide one, but being an extremely visual person I couldn’t help but think that a template might be useful. So, I made one for you! : )

    Me too! I love to get freebies!!! And this is such a great idea, that I'll have to use it for my next party. I've been looking for different ways to serve popcorn and loved this one. It came in the right time. Thanks!!!
