Bitten by the Bug 2 Easter Basket

Bitten by the Bug 2 has an Easter challenge this time.  This year Easter will certainly be different with all of the COVID 19 restrictions in place.  Last week I participated in a virtual crop since groups are not supposed to meet to help keep the virus from spreading.  It was different, but fun and I was able to get this basket done during the time I participated.


The pattern is from and is called Hippity Hoppity Basket.  Mary offered this basket svg file for free a couple of weeks ago, so I grabbed it.  The patterned paper was from a DCWV pack called Just My Type.  While it isn’t a typical Spring pack, the colors in it seemed to work well.  The base was white cardstock and I chose a solid green to match the patterned paper. This stack also had a page full of “happy” words and a page of shadow letters, so I used those to decorate the band at the top of the basket. The basket itself really went together pretty quickly and I will be making a few more to send to my grown children since we will not be able to get together this year.  My husband will get the other one so that he doesn’t feel left out.  He is 69 and still expects his basket, lol.

I hope that you all stay safe as we navigate through this pandemic.  If you have extra time while staying home join our challenge with your own Easter basket, box or bags using your Circut and post the link at Bitten by the Bug 2 – Denise

  1. Love the idea of a virtual crop-we have to find ways to stay connected. Someday hopefully things will be more normal…. The basket is so cute, and I think sending one to your adult kids would be such a fun way to let them know you are thinking of them even though you can’t be together. Hope you have a happy easter!


  2. wow, love the woven basket – bet that was fun to make. Here we are with our creations and not many will get to see them in real life, oh well, we have to do it. and the online video chats while on stay at home — I’ve done a few with my crafty girls – it’s a lifesaver.


  3. There is a little kid inside all of us, no matter the age! I think these papers are so pretty and are definitely great Easter colors. I love your Easter basket. It is so fun and a nice size for some goodies!
