I learned how to weave a reed basket this summer by my aunt Marjie. She is a professional basket weaver and has many other talents that make her just amazing. *:)* Well, when I saw this tutorial for weaving a paper basket, I thought, I can do that. Well, weaving paper is a bit more tricky than I thought. But, it is very 'doable' once you get the feel for it. I made this basket for Marissa and will be making another one this weekend for Cody. What a neat handmade with love piece to hand down. Here is the tutorial for this basket:http://www.wishyouwerehere-laura.blogspot.com/search/label/Basket%20Tutorial Oh, and the cute brads are from Making Memories Easter Collection. I LOVE them!
Another tutorial I found:http://confessionsofaribbonaddict.blogspot.com/2008/02/my-basket-tutorial.html It is a different style basket, but easier and just as cute!
