Make sure that all of the strips are centered.
Glue the Support strips along both sides as shown.


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

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




7. Repeat weaving with the remaining Weaving strips as shown, until 5 rows are completed. Gradually pull the vertical strips to tighten the gaps between the rows.



8. Make the handle of the basket using the longest Horizontal strip.
Take one end and tuck down to the bottom on the opposite side of the basket.

9. The other end should go over the handle made in Step 8
and tucked down on the outside between the Weaving strips.
Cut excess if necessary and glue the two strips together.

11. Cut off excess as necessary and tuck the ends into the third row from the top.
Ends should be unseen.
