Today I’m showing you how to make this cute basket.
The only materials you need are:
- Old magazines
Step 1: Collecting the pages
The first step is to take some pages from your magazine.
Step 2: Cutting the pages
Cut each page into fout equal strips.
Step 3: Folding the strips
Fold each strip in four so they become smaller, thicker strips. This is to make sure the basket becomes strong.
Step 4: Weaving the base
Start with laying two strips in a cross-shape snd secure them with some cellotape
Make sure you only use cellotape on one side, this will be at the bottom so you won’t see it. This is how the side without cellotape will look:
This is the hardest part. To start, create a long strip by sticking 2 (or 3 if you make a large basket) strips to each other, it should be long enough to go around the base.
Then, weave the long strips through one of the sides like this:
Cut off the excess of the strip and stick the end to the beginning:
To finish of cut all the stips untill they stick about 1-1,5 centimeters above the basket
I’m certainly planning on making a few more of these 😊
