Heart Baskets from Sweden

Cut out two circles of card (different colors), approximately 4 inches in diameter. Fold both circles in half. Slot one circle inside the other, so that the two pieces of card make a heart shape (the folded sides should be in a 'V' shape). Glue the overlapping edges. Cut a strip of card approx. 1/2 inch x 5 inches. Glue it to the inside of the basket to make a handle. When the basket has dried, fill the basket with candy.

Heart baskets are often made at Christmas in Sweden to hang on the Christmas tree.
