I had the instructions to this once and lost it so I'm glad to find it again. These baskets can make really cute Easter baskets for the table or for the little ones. You can make them from other paper as long as it's sturdy. Those glossy, sturdy catalog covers and things like that make colorful baskets that last. I made one from plain colored paper once and it looked good, but it was a little flimsy.
