Wrapping Paper Basket

I had this wrapping paper. At least, I think it's wrapping paper. It's about 24" x 36".

The colors are wonderfully saturated.

I cut sixteen 1" strips and folded in half the long way, so the base is about 4" square.

Follow these directions from Craftzine. The only thing I would add is that when you do the criss-crosses at the center of each side (forming the corners) you must be consistent--either right-over-left or left-over-right on all four sides. Otherwise, where the sides come together you will suddenly have two "overs" or two "unders" next to each other. Yup, learned that the hard way.
