During our daughter’s birthday party, the kids had their own craft project to keep them busy, but I also prepared two easy projects for the moms to work on. The first project was a simple favor bag…
…containing a mini bag of m&m’s.
Following is a detailed closeup of the little bag. The scalloped square was mounted with foam tape to give it a little dimension.

The second project was a set of cone-shaped baskets for Easter. To make the baskets, I traced the outline of an 11″ dinner plate onto a 12×12 sheet of cardstock, cut out the circle, then cut the circle into four equal pieces. Each piece of cardstock could then be rolled into cone shapes and secured with double-sided tacky tape. Ribbon handles were attached with brads, and coordinating tags were made and tied on with embroidery floss. The project was fairly easy to make, but rolling the cardstock into a nicely shaped cone proved to be a little tricky at times. Following are photos of two sets of baskets that were made at the party:
