Here they are as requested--I took pics of steps for yas ( I'm a better visuals learner so I always appreciate pics with tutorials-- please ignore my messy CM mat--that's what happens when you let the kids play with your ink--yep they hit the STAZON). Let me know if ya have any questions!!

Here's what you need to make this project:

http://i477.photobucket.com/albums/rr137/klyarus/IMGP4340.jpg

1 - 5" x 12" sheet of cardstock
11- 1" x 5" strips of cardstock
1 = 1.5" X 12 strip of cardstock
Ribbon, Threading water punch or your favorite border punch, sanding block, I used Swiss Dots CB embossing folder, and your stronng adhesive

Cut 4- 1 inch strips in the 5 x 12 strip starting 1/2 inch in and leaving a 1/2 inch at the end so you don't cut all the way through end up with a wash board looking piece of paper.

Weave the 11- 1 x 5 inch strips in between the slots on the 5 x 12 sheet
after done weaving glue all the flaps that are on top down, then flip over and do other side. Set this piece aside to dry.

Tale the 1.5 x 12 inch strip and use border punch on both side of the strip ( this will form the handle)!!

Nnow return to your dry, weaved, 5 x12 sheet and cut 1/4 inch from one of the edges. This is to give you a straight edge to create the rim of the basket. Use punch along entire length.

Now , emboss the 5 x12 sheet with your favorite CB folder. Just turn the EB folder sideways and repeat three times to do the entire length

emboss the handle strip, again turned the EB folder sideways and repeat three times to do the entire length.

Use sanding block to expose the white core of the embossing on both strips.

overlap, I go in two scallops on the punch and line them up and adhere to create round shape.

If you DIDN'T use the embossing folder and just used polka dot paper, or solid paper, would it work?

Erica, it works just fine!! You can even change it up a bit and instead of doing solid color for your 11- 1" strips you can use pattern paper or a different solid... I have one I just did this am pink and green and it's super cute too!! I just embossed because I like the the demension it adds with sandind to the white core. Have fun!!

thank you Kerri! I am about to go make one then! I don't have the embossing tools, so I was just going to use like polka dot paper or something. =] But hope you don't mind, I added this tutorial to my blog. =]
