Paper Basket Instructions

We made this basket at our last craft night.  I wanted to post the instructions for anyone who missed it and a reference for those that came.

 Cut a piece of cardstock to 6x6.  Using a score board, score at 2 inches and 4 inches.  Rotate once and do the same, making what looks like a tic-tac-toe board.  Then score the corners diagonally.

Fold on score lines.  Punch holes on the corners, this is where you will thread ribbon through to tie the sides together.

This size is perfect for party favors and small gifts.  You can easily make a larger basket using a 12x12 piece of cardstock, scoring at 4 inches and 8 inches.  I have used the larger size for center pieces and to hold a gift (instead of a gift bag).  

Let me know if you have any questions!
