Step 1: Fold the Sheet

Fold the sheets of the newspaper.

I made strip of 3 cm width, using one newspaper.

I close each strip with stick glue..this make the basket very resistant!

Step 2: Weave the Base

Weave the base (4X4 in my case).

Step 3: Weave the Sides

Take a box as much as the base; this will help to weave the sides.

Take another strip and come together that with the stapler.

Step 4: Complete

Complete the first cycle and close that with the stapler.

Step 5: Complete

Complete till the end.

Step 6: Paint

Paint and decore as you want.

    Wow! This is great! You just saved me bunches of money on some under-the-bed baskets. Thanks so much! I'm totally making these in the next couple of days. <3

    Thank you @Printy! I would like to see your baskets...I have much to learn by the other makers :)

    This is so much easier than I thought! Your photos are easy to follow. Thank you!

    @parisusa thank you so much! we just attached a video of how we folded and glued the strips. Unfortunately we couldn't put the video of how we twisted..but it's easy and impressive! We wanted to give a "leather" effect using acrylic paint (brown!)
