Procedure

1. Make the base. Using the Horizontal strips 1 and 2 place horizontally, alternating by length as shown. Make sure that all of the strips are centered then glue the Support strips (Blue in this picture) on both ends as shown.

2. Turn over, and glue the Vertical strips along both sides as shown.

3. Flip back to the front side. Take  the vertical strip and weave as shown, alternating over and under.

4. Make sure that all of the vertical strips are aligned, and glue the Support strip along the top and bottom as shown.

5. Fold all strips upward as shown. Take a weaving strip and place the end behind the 2nd vertical strip and secure with a clip or clothespin. Weave alternately, use clothespins to help keep in place.

6.Slightly fold corners to keep in place.

7. After weaving the first row cut off any excess and glue. Make sure that the ends are hidden by the vertical strips.

8. Using an accent weaving strip, weave the second row by starting at the third vertical strip on the opposite side of the basket to maintain even thickness. 

9. Weave alternately. This row should have the opposite effect of the first row.

10. Repeat until 3 rows have been woven as shown.

11. Vertical strips that are on the outside of the top row, fold inward, Inside of the top row, fold  outward.

12. Cut all the vertical strips to1cm from the fold line.
