While searching online for basket-weaving projects, I came across this classic tutorial for making paper baskets, written by Friend of Unconsumption Diane Gilleland.
(Many of you will recall the awesome project Diane made for us — for our Uncollection — in which she spruced up an old t-shirt by adding the Unconsumption Mr. Cart logo onto it.)
Any paper you have on hand that’s at least 12” x 12” in size could be used for weaving these paper baskets. A nice use for some outdated maps, I think.
To make your own basket(s), check out Diane’s thorough tutorial on CRAFT magazine’s CRAFTzine blog here.
(Even if you don’t intend to make baskets, you could still check out Diane’s tutorial — it’s really well done!)
