I've wanted to make a basket that looks like this for a while now.  Thanks to instructables and the cardboard challenge I got the motivation to make it happen.  When thinking about making it I decided I wanted it to have multiple uses and to look somewhat like an art piece.  So here it is, I like how it turned out and if you make one let me see pics!

Step 1: gather supplies

for this project I used 16 paper towel cardboard tubes that were all the same size
I used white glue but hot glue might work as well
use scissors or a paper cutter for the strips, I used a paper cutter but scissors would work to
large cereal boxes
cracker, tissue, and other thin cardboard (non-coraggated boxes)
paper clips (not pictured)
1&1/2 inch circle punch

-16 paper towel tubes

thats very good! <br>thanks.
