A Tisket....A Tasket

While I love spring pastels as much as the next guy, I feel the need for some punchy black and white to give an edge to my Easter decorations. You can make this paper basket any color you'd like. By the way, I think this is called a diagonal scandinavian basket weave, but don't quote me as I'm not sure. Anyone?
 I took two pieces of 12 x12" scrapbook paper and cut then into 1/2" strips.
 Oops. I realized that I only needed 12 of each and not 24. Oh well, now I have the makings for 2 baskets. Weave them together making sure that everything is centered.
 Look carefully and you can see where I penciled in a square base by finding the middle of each side and connecting the dots. I took garden-variety masking tape, taped it to my shirt then pulled it off. This takes some of the stick-um off the tape and makes it repositionable. Tape all of the corner strips together.
 This is a goofy picture, but I'm trying to show you to fold up the sides. I folded facing sides on the penciled lines and creased them well, opened them up and folded/creased the opposite sides.
 Now, using clothes pins or more destuck masking tape, interweave the corners.
 Start at the center of each side, fold a strip back and weave it through the outside strips.
 Fold back the opposite strip and weave it through. Continue on this way around until all of the strips are locked in place. You will find that it makes sense to fold some of the strips toward the inside of the basket and some of the strips aren't long enough to fold back. Use a glue stick or double-faced tape to attach the short ones. Make sure that all the little points are even to form a zigzag top. Remove any lingering bits of masking tape and clip off any excess paper.
Fill the basket with paper grass to provide the perfect nest for your fluffy Easter chicks - including the one who seems a bit distracted.

Such a cute little 'nest' for the chickies! I just bought a box of those mini chicks at Big Lots for a dollar -- need to go get more I think!

I Have Realized Some Important Matters Through Your Website Post. One Other Stuff I Would Like To Express Is That There Are Several Games Available On The Market Designed In Particular For Preschool Age Youngsters. They Incorporate Pattern Acceptance, Colors, Pets, And Patterns. These Often Focus On Familiarization As An Alternative To Memorization. This Makes Little Children Occupied Without Having A Sensation Like They Are Learning. Thanks
