Woven Paper Basket
: 20 minutes
Make cuts along the edge of the cardboard
Weave a ribbon in and out of the cardboard
Take a long rectangle shape of colored card board or strong paper. Measure it as long as you want the basket to be round.
Fold it in half, length ways.
Make small cuts about 1 centimeter apart along the folded edge of the cardboard, being careful not to cut all the way along (leave some space at each end).
continue weaving the ribbon through
Unfold your cardboard and take the ribbon to begin weaving.
Tape one end of the ribbon to the inside of the cardboard and weave in and out where you made the cuts.
Tape the other end of the ribbon inside the cardboard to secure it.
Continue weaving colored ribbons, alternating the layers and securing the ends.
Once you've finished weaving the ribbon through, tape the ends of the cardboard to form a round shape.
Wind the colored wool around your pipe cleaner to form the handle of the basket.
Tape the handle onto the cardboard on opposite sides.
Trace the circle shape of the base onto some more cardboard and cut it out to make a bottom for your basket.
Tape the circle shape onto the basket base securely.
Fill the basket with treats or a small gift and offer it as a present to mum or a good friend.
