I had two hours to myself today and Easter being only a couple of days away, I thought to myself....hmmmm...d o I want to buy some WalMart basket that has almost no use after Easter?  Heck No!  So...I made collapsable Easter basket boxes thingies, you can untie them and fold them up or they can be used for a variety of things.  Alright they can be used to hold stuff...but they were free and and easy (despite what you hear that was not my nick name in high school).

here you go...

this one is for my 6 yr old, she totally loves the Simpsons.



for my oldest, I think at 14 she is aware of the status of the Easter Bunny but she still pretends for her little sister's sake


and last but not least, my 12 year old, and yes it is filled with lip balm and crafty goodness.

thank you for looking
c & c appreciated

Great idea! Whats nice is they're collapsable if you don't need to use them year round, but you can use them all the time without them screaming "Easter"!!
Where did you find Simpsons fabric?

The Simpson's fabric came from the remnant bin at WalMart quite awhile ago, I just held on to it until something came up.

These are simply perfect!!!! I have a problem..or so I am told...with boxes and containers in general. The fact that these can store flat out of sight when not in use makes perfect sense to me. Super fun fabrics too. You have very lucky kids.

I just saw some at a Walmart today.  If your doesn't have it ask and see if they can order it for you.  Mine does it for me all the time.

I also love boxes and containers of all types, I can organize myself into a complete mess if I am not careful. I am glad you liked them.  I am going to make more , I don't know why but I feel the need.

I love the "organize myself into a complete mess".
Do you know where I could get a pattern or do you have a Tut?
