Hi! This instructable shows how to create a heart shaped basket out of paper!

If you'd like to watch this in video form, please click the video above :)


  • The heart pattern here: http://pugdemonium.blogspot.com/2016/02/paper-hear... (or you can draw your own heart, but it needs to be similar in size or you will need to make adjustments)
  • Paper (Heavier weight paper such as cardstock will work best, but any paper will work)
  • Scissors
  • Glue (I like to use hot glue because it is strong and holds very quickly)
  • Ruler


  • A paper cutter (this will really speed up the process - you will be cutting many strips of paper)

Step 1: Prepare All the Pieces

1. Start by tracing the heart pattern onto your paper of choice, then cut it out and set it aside.

2. Next, cut paper into one inch strips.

You will need:

  • 12 strips that are 1" wide by 11" high. I used 10 pink and 2 red.
  • 20 strips that are 1"wide by 5.5"high. I used 10 white and 10 red.
