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.
Take a 6x6 pp (either a one-side or double sided), and score it at 2" and 4".
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".
Cut the middle squares (upper and lower) on both sides of the square.
Distress the edges with distress ink.
Put some adhesive along the outer sides of the middle square, and on the inner corners of the 2 nearby squares.
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).
Adhere a thin strip (8"x3/8") in the middle of the punched strip.
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!
