the square or rectangle, die cut your desired cardstock/paper. You
will need 4. Two for the front/back, then two for the sides.
2: Score in between the last scallop-edge to edge. See photo. On
the front/back piece ONLY score bottom. On side pieces score both
side AND bottom. On the side pieces snip the corner (triangle
3: Bend all scored edges FORWARD. Apply adhesive to all bent edges.
4: When putting together - line up the tops scallop to scallop.
5: Create a bottom for the basket. Cut a 3 1/8 inch square and
adhere. (If you use the LARGEST scallop rectangle, it turns out to be
3 1/2 inches squared, for your bottom piece. It becomes a square due
to the way the sides are scored.)
6: Add a handle. Cut a strip of cardstock about 1 1/4 inches wide
by 11 inches long-end - will fit perfect. I added a slightly thinner
strip of patterned paper to the handle. Put ends of the handle on
the inside. They will also keep the sides from buckling in.
7: Decorate the basket as desired. I cut out flowers on the
patterned paper and adhered with adhesive and 3-D foam.
