Woven Easter Baskets

Baskets and quilts are two of my favourite home decorating items and ironically, two items that I am unable to make for myself. Anyway, while I was having a cuppa, a sit down and a good old think one day I realised that I might just be able to recreate a basket out of cardboard. Now, I won't tell you how many sheets of cardstock I ruined but I did eventually end up creating some baskets.


I have put together a tutorial for creating these little goodies, but it is very long and heavy on the photos. I decided to cut it into three parts to make it easier to follow and upload, and will post them for you over the course of three days. Hopefully you'll be able to put together some baskets of your own just in time for Easter.
