Basket Weave Card

by Kelly Acheson

Create a latticed card with a few simple cuts and folds.


  • Cardstock (Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Carried Away Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Basket Weave Card printable template
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Bone folder
  • Paper clips
  • Adhesive (Tombow Mono Liquid Glue used here)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Stampin’ Up! supplies used here: Die Cutting Machine, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Peekaboo Peach cardstock, Banner Triple Punch, Lift Me Up Stamp Set, Up & Away Thinlits Dies, Big Shot Die Brush, Precision Base Plate, Magnetic Platform, Soft Sky and Night Navy ink pads, Dimensionals or 3D Pop Dots)


  1. Step 1

    Cut a cardstock base at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Fold it in half and burnish the edge with a bone folder.

  2. Step 2

    Place the template over the folded edge of the card base with slash marks facing down, and secure it in place with paper clips. Use scissors to cut on all lines.

  3. Step 3

    Cut the bottom triangle off and set it aside.

  4. Step 4

    Open the card. Working on the outside of the card, fold every other triangle down, and tuck it under the one below.

  5. Repeat this step for each of the triangular cuts.

  6. Step 5

    Add the top triangle to the card using a little glue, and tuck the end under like the rest.

  7. Step 6

    Adhere a 5 1/2" x 3 1/4" piece of patterned paper to the card front with liquid glue.

  8. Step 7

    Embellish the card.

  9. Add a panel to the inside as well.

  10. Step 8

    Complete the project.

When I tried this I had cut marks beyond the weaving. Can you tell me what I did wrong and how to make it neater? Thank you.

Terrific tutorial, Kelly. Clear and easy-to-follow directions. Love the sponge/glue tip. My first attempt was a success. You have a beautiful voice with a modulated tempo. You'd be great for "voice overs." : ) Thanks.

Wonderful tutorial and a great project. Can't wait to try this.

Patricia Wilson - you have to make sure that you're only cutting on the lines on the template. Then you should have better results with the weave pattern. I hope this helps!

Very nicely done. The technique is actually known as Incere or braiding. Steel dies are available by searching for Geo-Dies at The Frantic Stamper or Popups, etc.

I was cutting on the lines but was I cutting too far in and not stopping when I should to get that extra cut look?

Adorable card - thanks for sharing!

Patricia, is it possible that you started folding on a different tab than Kelly did? That would make a difference.

Wonderful tutorial - technique and the card itself. I love that you added some tips that could apply to any card we'd make. Thank you!
