Steps You Need To Follow To Make A DIY Accordion Paper Basket

Step 1-

Accordion DIY Paper Basket

Let’s start with the color paper/sheet. Take a ruler and mark 9.5cm markings on the sheet. Make 3 such 9.5 cm markings and draw the lines using ruler and pencil. Cut all the three portions using scissors. Now, take one portion, fold it from the center. Open it and again make 2 folds form the paper. Open it again and make 3 portions. Similarly, make multiple folds form this paper. Now this paper is ready for an accordion style fold. Thus, fold the paper back and forth in thin strips just like an accordion.

Step 2-

Now, using a cutter, make slight bends on the sides and fold them. We will stick the cardboard strip on this paper sheet. Thus, apply glue on the bottom of cardboard sheet and stick it in the center portion of the sheet.

Stick color paper on these shapes and stick this boat-shaped cardboard on both the sides of the accordion. This way, the basket will get a strong support from the base.

Step 6-

Steps To Make A Paper Basket DIY Craft

Step 1: Make the base of the basket

Paper Basket

Let’s start with making the basket base. We will use the thick cardboard to prepare the base. Thus, take measurements. Draw a width line of 8cm, make two 4.5 cm, sides and mark the corners of 1 inch as shown in the video. Also, draw a semi-circle in the corner boxes to give a bulging shape to the paper DIY basket. With the help of a cutter, cut the entire shape from the cardboard. You will get a bulging rectangle shape.

Step 2: Create the framing stripes

Paper Basket Recycled Craft

Now take another cardboard and take measurements. Draw 1.5 inch long strips and cut it with a cutter. On these stripes, draw a thin line on both the sides and run the cutter to make a thin cardboard bend. From the middle of these stripes, remove 1 layer of cardboard using a cutter. Refer the video to trim out the cardboard layer perfectly. This way, you will get a strip thin from middle and thick from the sides.  Repeat this process for both the 1.5-inch strips.

Step 3: Frame the base with side cardboard stripes

Paper Basket DIY Craft

The stripes which we prepared right way will be used for framing the sides of the basket. We made the cardboard stripes thin to let them fold easily. Now it’s time to stick the stripes to the base. Thus, apply some glue on the inner bottom of the stripes and stick it to the base. Cover the entire base with these stripes and you will get a perfectly shaped basket.

While your colour basket is getting dry, take another cardboard sheet and take measurements. Make 2 long strips with the width of around 3.5 inches and make these stripes thin using the previous method, take the cutter and remove 1 layer of the cardboard form the stripes which make it thin and foldable. We will use these stripes to make the corner handles.

Step 6: Colour the stripes

Handmade Paper Basket

We need to now color both of the stripes with pink shade. Cover both the stripes with pink from both the sides and let it get dry. Once the stripes are dry, you need to decorate the stripes with satin pink ribbon. On the sides of these stripes, apply some glue and stick pin ribbon. Cut the remaining part with the scissors and glue the small ribbon in the backside of the stripes.

Step 7: Cover the base of basket

Decorative Paper Basket

The basket is prepared using cardboard and thus, we will need to cover the inner part of the basket. For this, get a pink foam sheet and place the basket on the paper. Take a pencil and trace the basket on the sheet. Using a cutter trim the foam sheet and get the exact shape of the basket. Apply some glue in the base of the basket and stick the sheet in the basket. Let it get dry.

Step 8: Cover the sides of basket

We also need to cover the inner sides of the basket. Thus, apply the foam sheet on the sides using glue and cut the remaining sheet with a cutter. This way, you will get a stunning inner framing for the basket.

This will give a svelte smooth look to your basket. You can also apply this ribbon on the sides of the base to make it look more extraordinary. Below the pink ribbon, stick the pearl lace using glue. Again in the bottom of the basket, apply glue and stick the pink ribbon. This will give a mesmerizing look to the basket!

Step 10: Assemble the holders
