Duct Tape Easter Basket

Picture of Duct Tape Easter Basket
I made this because my sister wanted to enter the "Make to learn youth contest". After a while, she said she wanted to make an Easter basket. She never actually made it, but she inspired me to make a Easter basket for myself. I actually wasn't going to publish it, but then I saw the "Crafting speed challenge" and I thought it might win something.

First, measure how wide your roll of duct tape is. Then mark that length six times and make six rectangles(see picture). To make the rectangles exact, follow the lines on the cardboard. Then make a line across the tops of the rectangles to make them into 6 boxes that are 5" x how wide your duct tape is. Now cut them out.

Step 3: Continuing

Now measure along a crease in your cardboard and make 12 marks, each one inch apart. Make 12 rectangles, and make 6 of them 5" long, and the other six 6" long. Cut them out.

Now find a part of your cardboard that's at least 25" long. Make three marks on it that are each 1 1/4" apart(see picture). Now make two long strips that are each 1 1/4" x 25" long. Cut them out.

Step 5: Stop And Double Check
