First you need to prepare the basis of the basket – the box. It is necessary to glue a wide handle from cardboard, the length of which will depend on the size of the box itself.
After that, the box itself and her handle must be placed by colored paper both outside and from the inside and leave it until it fails.
Now you can proceed to the workpiece of elements. For this, from bilateral colored paper, it is necessary to carefully and very exactly cut strips with a width of 0.5 and 1.0 cm.

Basket made of cord and flaps fabric
If you have accumulated a lot of multi-colored flaps of the fabric, do not hurry to get rid of them and send them to the trash. They can be a beautiful and elegant basket for eggs on Easter made with their own hands.

- Plastic bucket by 0.5 liters with a handle;
- Rope 0.5-0.7 cm thick;
- Loskutka fabric;
- Sewing machine (you can do without it).

After the decorated rope of the desired length is made, you can start decorating a bucket-basket. You need to start from the bottom of the bucket. The resulting cord should be twisted with a spiral around the bucket and cross rows. They must fit to each other tightly so that the basket is accurate and durable. If you have a glue gun, you can edit the edge of the rope at the very beginning of the winding to stick to the bucket, so that it is more convenient to wind it.
