Craft the printable baskets
Print the gift baskets on DIN A4 or US letter size cardstock or photo paper and cut out along the grey lines. Working with a bone folder and ruler, crease along the grey lines and fold the sides inwards. Put glue on all the flaps that say “Glue”. You can either use double-sided tape, a strong glue stick, or superglue.
To assemble the basket, adhere the short side parts to the long side parts. Line with a napkin or grease-proof paper. Now your gift basket is ready to be filled with marzipan pinecone treats!
Tip: We also printed the decorative pattern on the back of the printables so the baskets look pretty on the inside, too.
