Heart Basket

I would like to blog this little heart with instructions on how to make it, but without taking this little heart basket apart, I don't know how it's made. This heart basket was one that my mother made during her days of teaching kindergarten. Somehow it's made it's way into my collection of handmade Valentines and I find it each year when I display the collection. Does anyone know how to make these simply sweet little baskets? They are small and the perfect size for placing a tiny container of cut flowers in to give away for Valentine's or May Day.

*Thank you, Lallee! I appreciate the link you sent that gives instructions for making heart baskets.


  1. I remember making one of these years ago. I found these instructions on the Internet:
    I know having the one your mother made is very special.

  2. Thank you so much, Lallee! I am eager to create some myself. Much appreciation for the link!

  3. That is such a cute little basket, and so special being one your Mom made years ago. Good luck finding out how to make more. Wish I could help.

  4. I remember seeing something like when I lived with your mom! I'm glad someone sent you a link on how to make one, 'cuz I don't really remember. I do recognize the basket, however.
