I made this basket for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge. I know what you are thinking "No she did not weave a basket out of paper!" Well, yes I did 'big grin'. I have several Longaberger baskets and thought a round basket would be perfect for this challenge. Amazingly enough it takes only one 12x12 sheet of paper for a basket this size. It is about 5" round by 3" high.
*edit* I have had many requests for a pattern or tutorial. I am working on a tutorial and should have it posted on my blog by Friday!

I have several longaberger baskets--never thought of this! Your basket is lovely. This is one of my favorite baskets IRL. Can you share with us how you made this? Did you have any problems while weaving where the paper ripped? WOW--just drop my jaw!!! Nice work and TFS.
