Spring Stamp Camp basket...

The coolest thing about this basket is that it uses one 12" x 12" sheet of designer paper, a metal ring and some ribbon. After that, add grass or goodies or whatever you like!

To make this: Score at 4" and 8", then turn the paper and score at 4" and 8" again. It should look like a tic-tac-toe board. Now take one corner into your hands and score from where the score lines meet to the outside corner. Repeat on each corner. You should have a diagonal score line on each corner.

I punched a 1/8" hole about 1/2" down from each corner. You bring those to the middle and put the metal ring through the holes. The ring will be mostly horizontal. Now add knots of ribbon all the way around (so you don't see the ring anymore), and finish as desired.

(Note: If you fold the corners out instead of in, you can overlap two corners and staple/add a brad to secure them in place, then do the same on the other side and get a box - without the lid - that you can add a handle to.)
