First, crease your paper against the side of your table to break the fibers a little, and give it a curve.
After that, carefully roll your paper to overlap, and adhere only the two shorter sides together, to make a tube. I like to take a bone folder and press on this seam from the inside of the tube to strengthen it.
Then, check your adhesive on each end and pinch one side closed, with the tube seam in the middle, as shown below. Make sure the end you choose to close first has adhesive running across the entire length of it, or the ends will not stay closed when you pinch them shut!
Place your treat inside open end, which you can see in the photo below on the left. Then seal the open end, this time with the seam of the tube at one extreme side of where you pinch it closed, as shown below on the right.
You can see the shape you should end up with in the picture below on the left. Then, crimp each end of the container closed, as shown below on the right, to strengthen the hold.
TIP: When you are deciding what size to make your container to accommodate your treat, you will want to use scratch paper to figure out the dimensions by trial and error.

To make the basket, you'll want to start off with an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock. Trim your sheet so that it is 8-1/2" square. (Keep the 2-1/2" x 8-1/2" strip, you'll use it for basket handles!) Then take your 8-1/2" square sheet and cut it into 4 even 4-1/4" squares. You'll end up with all the pieces shown below, which will make 4 complete baskets:
Take one 4-1/4" square, and score it at 1-1/4" on each side. You will then use your Paper Snips to make two cuts opposite each other, as marked by the white lines on the picture below:
Start wrapping your paper around the box from the center of the back of the box, as shown on the left below, so that your overlap ends up in the back. Do not choose either of the sides with triangles as the "back" of the box, we're going to use those for our handles later. As you wrap around the box, try to keep your paper centered on each side, and carefully bend it over each corner. When you get to the end, your paper strip will overlap itself slightly.
