Paper baskets (boxes)
Materials and tools:
- newspapers, magazines, etc .;
We make strips for weaving. We will cut paper strips 5–6 cm wide and 35–40 cm long. Fold the strip in half, and then fold the edges inward and smoothly.
Start weaving the bottom of the basket. Take 2 strips, mark the middle and put them in a cross. "From them," we proceed to weaving, adding new strips and weaving them "in a checkerboard pattern." The bottom of the basket should be square. When the bottom is ready, fasten it to the corners with a stapler. At the bottom, we draw a diamond (see Fig.) And bend the edges along a drawn rum.
Divide the stripes, start weaving from the corner first from the central stripes. When the "first step" is made at one corner, fasten it with a paper clip and go to the next one (see picture).
When the lower part of the walls is ready, then the weaving will go easier, the strips are simply interlaced with each other “in a staggered manner” until the desired length is obtained.
At the end of the strip bend into the basket and "woven" into the wall.A paper basketis ready.
