Here's another "Craft from Waste" . A basket made using newspaper. Though it is paper, it is quite strong. This is the method i used: Tear newspaper into long strips ( about one inch broad) . Twist the strips down to make chords or ropes. Make many ropes. Coil one rope round and round and stick or cellotape the end to make a flat bottom. Stick or cellotape six or eight ropes in radiating way to the bottom piece. Bend all radiating chords to vertical position and press the bend nicely. Then start weaving ( basket weaving type ). When ending, stick firmly with fevicol. Finish off by making a braid and sticking around the top of basket. Same way, another braid for handle. I have given pictures also so the method will be clear.
