Step 1: Supplies Needed
Scissors or paper cutter
Something to use to pry staples open
Plastic bottle (the size of the bottle will determine the diameter of your finished basket) from this example I used a large medicine bottle, but you could use a soup can or even something much larger like an empty bleach or vinegar bottle.
Glue stick and a bottle of craft glue
1 sheet card stock or poster board
pen to trace with
small clothes pins
utility knife to cut bottle to use as a liner for your basket
Step 3: Step 2
Note: after you have made a few of these baskets you might want to cut strips of varing widths to add interest to the woven pattern.
Step 4: Step 3
Open up the strip and fold bottom edge to touch the center fold.
Fold the crease at the bottom edge up to center.
Step 5: Step 4
Then fold again to center.
Now fold the whole strip in half creasing well.
Step 6: Step 5
(scissors not required -I just needed a weight to keep strip flat and folded for the photo)
