I weaved a basket out of newspaper at a workshop and it made me think “OH MY GOD” this would look fabulous with Designer Series paper!
My family and I were lucky enough to spend last weekend at the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, PA. If you are at all interesting in learning more about self sustainable living this is a great event for lectures and hands on learning. Enough of the background though let me tell you how it was done.
Using a folded sheet from the newspaper (that would be two sheets connected by a fold or 4 readable sides). Fold the paper on the long end in half, then half again. The piece ended up to be about 1 1/2 inches wide. Do this to make 13 strips. Take 4 strips by 3 strips and make a criss cross bottom. Fold up the remaining sections of strip and start weaving the sides in an over under pattern for 3 strips high, I taped at start and where needed. The top is another layer of strip where the reamining ends are tucked in. To make the handle wrap two strips around each other. Tuck into a inside weave, glue and tape for stability.
