Paper Woven Basket

This is from doitang. There are no english instructions, but its definatley doable. Basically the creator created strips of recycle paper to weave a small basket. The strips were reinforced with sewing. Basketry is an art that requires patience. I’ve made several reed baskets and have found that once you get the first few side strips in, it goes much smoother. I love the idea of recycling the old paper though! Give it a try.
