Easy Paper Basket by Dr Sonia

Hi friends Dr Sonia here from Cards ,Crafts & Kids Projects .Sometimes life just gets too busy for crafting and I struggled for ideas and time for this Guest DT post for Itsy Bitsy. But then I thought most of us go through such times and I thought I would share a super simple project which can be whipped up in minutes when we are short of time!
I followed the tutorial for this accordion style Paper Basket and even though Origami is actually not my cup of tea this is a an easy project to make

Paper Basket
I used 5 squares of 6 x 6 inch pattern paper to make this 3 compartment basket. If you have a scoring tool you can easily make a sturdy basket from thick paper . This paper basket is perfect to showcase double sided pattern papers as as you can see the  inside of the paper basket!

I glittered up and added pearl centers to some beautiful Itsy Bitsy Boutique flowers for a quick embellishing of my paper basket.
I recently got the round nose pliers from Itsy Bitsy and they came in so handy to make some dangling beaded charms to hang on the ledge of the paper basket


This is how I threaded beads and flower caps on a head pin 

Beaded Charm

Attached the beaded pin to a ring and hung it to dangle on the ledge of the  basket.Used the Itsy Bitsy border to make a handle for the paper basket .

Without the handle ,the charm of this paper basket is that it folds flat in an accordion style and can be stored away!

Origami Basket

I hope you liked this simple quick to do project which has so much potential.If you want to attempt something more elaborate here are links to Box tutorials on my blog.

And thank you so much Sunehra and team Itsy Bitsy for having me here as Guest DT once again.
