Girls’ Paperie: Jubilee basket

Standard

Time for another “as seen at CHA” project from the Girls Paperie.  This was a complete blast. A total “I know what I’m going to do today!” creative moment.

 

I got a wooden woven basket, and I cut/ripped off all of the pieces going around it. I did NOT alter the top, or the vertical wood pieces.

I just removed all the horizontal ones. The wood is pretty easy to remove – it only took a few minutes until I had this:

I just wove paper through (3/4″ – 1″ wide), and if the paper strip ran out, I just attached it to another of same pattern/width and kept going around! I used double sided tape (Scrapbook Adhesives crafty power tape), and just kept repeating for each new strip around the basket.

Once I was done, I added a scallop edged piece of paper, some ribbon, and crumpled/folded (pinked edge) paper around the top too. On the inside I added another strip of paper to hide an awkward spot too.

Because this is double sided paper, you can see it’s as pretty inside as it is outside!

A few more embellishments, and my Jubilee basket is complete!

Such a fun project – and with spring coming I totally recommend doing one of your own!!

  1. I love it, too, May, and can see it being done in wedding shower theme colors and for May Day baskets. Weaving is one of my favorite things to do, along with braiding!!!

  2. Oh May! I have been hanging onto a tissue box I love that got ruined. . . Is it okay if I leave work and go home and check it out??? I think there is enough stability left to do this. Yay!!!!! Thanks, creative one. . .
