A paper basket tutorial

Hello dear crafty friends,

Today I have an easy peasy tutorial for you, how to make a paper basket.
I've made my tutorial with a 6"x6" paper, but you cand easily adjust it to any size you wish.

1st step:

Take a 6x6 pp (either a one-side or double sided), and score it at 2" and 4".

2nd step:

Rotate the paper 90 degrees, and score again at 2" and 4".
You should end up with a 9x9 squares, each one measures 2"x2".

3rd step:
Cut the middle squares (upper and lower) on both sides of the square.

4th step: 
Distress the edges with distress ink.

5th step:
Put some adhesive along the outer sides of the middle square, and on the inner corners of the 2 nearby squares.

6th step:
Adher both corners to the middle square, so they laps each other. Do the same on both sides.

7th step - the handle:
Take a cs 8"x1.5" and use a border punch on both sides (make sure to line up the pattern on both sides).

8th step:
Adhere a thin strip (8"x3/8") in the middle of the punched strip.

9th step:
Adhere the handle strip on both sides of the basket.

You can decorate your basket as desired.

I hope you'll find this tutorial usefull.

Thank you for stopping by!
