My First Basket

I like baskets...But never tried..This was my first basket so easy to make and added colourful to my space..hope u like it tooo...Here i used construction paper to prepare a basket.

Things to make
Construction paper

2 sheets 9x12-inch orange construction paper(you can use any of your choice)
3 sheets 9x12-inch brown construction paper 
5-inch paper cut plate

How to?

1.Cut 8 strips of orange construction paper, each 12 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. With 2 pieces of the brown construction paper, glue the 12-inch-long edges of the pieces together (overlap the edges a little). After the glue has dried, cut 4 strips 16 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.

2.Glue 2 orange strips together at the middle to form a cross. Do this with all the other red strips until you have 4 red crosses. Place the 4 crosses on top of each other,evenly. Glue them in place  they should look like a star.

3. Use the 5-inch plate to draw a circle on the other piece of red construction paper. Cut out the circle, and glue it to the center of the star. This forms the bottom of your basket. Fold the rays of the star up at the edge of the circle.
4. Weave the brown strip over and under the rays all the way around. and glue the ends of the brown strip together. Hold ends together until glue begins to dry. Repeat with remaining beige strips. Push brown strips close together before gluing. 

5.Cut an orange strip of round length and stick with a glue one strip from inside and one from outside.
6.Cut a strip of brown colour to make a handle.Apply glue at the ends of the strip and place the strip in between the basket weave.

&.Now its your turn to decorate it...I made a paper ribbon and flowers and a love symbol shaped photographed hanging.

It added colour to my Tv stand..
