Default Woven Easter Basket Project

Spring is definitely in the air with this lovely Woven Easter Basket project!

You will need:
Double-sided Card Stock, Paper Trimmer, Punches, Embellishments, Ultra Strong Tape and Dries-clear glue

To start, cut 14-16 2cmx30.5cm strips of double-sided cardstock, from 2 co-ordinating patterns (my cardstock was patterned on one-side and plain on the other).
Place 4 strips flush to each other horizontally. Weave in 2 strips vertically, move these strips over to be central to the horizontal strips. Check everything is flush and the edges are aligned, then weave in 4 more strips, 2 on each side.Use a steel edge ruler and score tool, to score the base of your basket, then fold in each stake and burnish the score with a bone folder to achieve a sharp finish.
Now start the upper weaving with one of the 2cm strips. Weave all the way around. You will need to extend the strip with about 12.5cm cut from one of the remaining 2cm strips, but wait until you have woven your first strip and then measure how much of an extension you will need, as this is dependent on how tightly you weave as you go. Weave three more rows and then trim any excess spokes flush to the forth row. This will still look slightly “unfinished” so you will need to hide the raw edge with a decorative trim. Cut a piece of cardstock 5.5cmx30.5cm, decorate with border punches and ribbon. Attach to your basket with brads or ultra sticky tape.

Decorate your basket with embellishments in a way that pleases your eye and fill your basket with pretty foiled wrapped eggs, then think how sweet!

Thank you for looking, I have detailed step-by-step instructions over on my blog on how to make this Woven Easter Basket.

That's a cute basket. Perfect for this time of the year. We also have two tutorials in the resource section on woven baskets.
