ROUND EASTER BASKET
Pixie Cottage Stamp: Little Chick and Little Lamb
Martha stewart Circle Cutter
Cut a circle that is 7.5 cm in diameter (3 inches)
Cut 11 strips that measure 10cm x 1cm (4" x 0.4")
Fold the strips at 1cm (0.4")
and glue to the circle as shown in the picture below.
Cut 8 strips measuring 25cm x 1cm (9.8" x 0.4")
With these strips you will be creating the basket. You do so by passing these strips in and out of the strips that were glued to the base in the previous step.
Continue to weave the other strips as shown in the previous step. Be sure to alternate your weaving. Where you weaved the strip outwards, you will now weave the strip inwards.
This is what the finished basket looks like. Be sure to glue every strip in its place.
Create the handle 16cm x 2cm (6.3" x 0.9")
Create the rim of the basket using a strip that is 25 cm x 1.5cm (9.8" x 0.6"). You can now take these strips and use your favourite border punch.
Glue the handle and the rim onto your basket.
This is the finished basket.
Easter is right around the corner, but this basket is very easy and fast to make. I hope you enjoy giving this creation a try.
Be sure to check back in two weeks for yet another wonderful tutorial. In the meantime we hope you continue to play with us at the The Pixie Cottage by joining us in our weekly challenges.
Have a great day and we wish you Happy Easter
