Cute Sheep Basket Template

| | | | | |

Now, you have probably already spotted these as part of our sets of Easter Basket Printables. I did however want to share these again, for two reasons – one, sometimes things get “lost” as part of bigger projects or bundles and two, though they are of course perfect for spring and Easter, these little Sheep Basket Printables, would also be lovely as an Eid al-Adha Craft! As you know, I have expanded on my islamic crafts and though Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr are already “covered”, Eid al-Adha is not so much.

Let’s make some Sheep Gift Baskets!

Cute sheep gift baskets

There are two versions of this simple (but hopefully, you will agre, cute!) Sheep Gift Basket Template – there is the white sheep – that you can leave white, colour in or print onto colourful card and there is a black face sheep – that again, you can leave as is, colour in some more and print onto card! Ha! 🙂

I hope you like both options.

As mentioned they are great for different occasions and festivities – be it a simple farmyard party favour, a spring or Easter craft or of course perfect as little Eid Al-Adha Gifts too!

Supplies needed to make your Paper Easter Baskets

  • Light cardstock is ideal, though printer paper is “ok” too. If you are using light card stock, you can print straight onto colored card too. This little Sheep Basket especially will look great printed onto pastel colors such as lilac, yellow, blue and pink!
  • A pair of scissors
  • A glue stick
  • Crayons, coloring pencils, pens or watercolors if using the Basket as Coloring Pages!
  • Fun Gift Basket Fillers: shredded paper is a great base for your Eid gift, then add small chocolate or other candy and treats
  • The printable sheep basket template!

As mentioned you can get the lamb basket templates for free, by clicking on the “Single Printable” red button below and entering $0 at check out. I have shared the other 5 Easter Basket Designs here again too (just in case you are here for Easter and not Eid!) These are available in both my Gumroad Store and Teacher’s Pay Teacher Store! Thank you for your support, I appreciate you! Please note, I added the sheep freebie later, so it isn’t part of the full set. You need to grab both from Gumroad!

How to make an easy paper Sheep Basket with printable template

Again.. as this is part of my Easter Basket craft.. I am “boring” the step by step photos for assembly from that post. I hope that is ok!

As mentioned previously.. decide if you want to print your basket templates onto full color or white paper! Even on full color paper, you can still add details in a darker shade pen. E.g. you can color in the sheep’s “hair piece” in a darker shade to the rest of the body.

Take your time and enjoy coloring in the coloring pages. Explore different mediums if you wish. You can even add stickers too!

Once you are ready, carefully cut out the basket template. You will need the main body of the basket and the handle.

Make neat folds along the basket lines.

Add glue to the tabs on the sides of the basket. I find it easier to add all the glue first and then bring the sides together to make your little box.

Finally, glue the handle in place. You can also now glue on any other embellishments if you wish!

Done! Your little sheep basket is finished!
