nice idea. looking nice.
That's great use of news paper.Thank you for this nice idea.My DD is having holidays,will make with her,hope she will be happy doing this as she is getting bored.
wow.. you are really great... it is too good and a very nice show piece.
THANK YOU ALL DEAR FRIENDS FOR YOUR ENCOURAGING F.B.s. So happy you all like the craft !
Subhadra : Yes we can keep some flowers in it. But I dont use it as showpiece ! : -). When I visit people with small children we take sweets for them, so I put those sweets in such baskets, and give the child. They really like it ! This size basket can hold upto 250 gms. But the handle is only for decoration. Cannot use it to lift it !
Leela : we can make it more cuter by adding some bow or flower or butterfly motifs to the handle.
Nirmala and Shashiv : This is not so different or unique ! I found it in many Craft websites on internet !
ArunaRavi : Yes, it can have uses. I have fitted an empty face cream jar inside one basket so I can keep small change coins. I also have a bigger basket with a plastic cup fitted inside to keep the Weights of my three pressure cookers.
Homemaker : A thoran is a great idea. Have you posted it ? Would love to see.
Pussy : You are welcome. Hope the tutorial is useful to you.
GoldenDew : Thats the idea ! But I dint get the perfect colour shade for Wicker basket ! I must keep trying.
Nitya : My pleasure to share. Hope its helpful.
Rajinee , Kalaipriya : Thank you for appreciating Dears.
Swaran : Thank you . Basket weaving is like that spider -web craft we all use to make in school no, with broomstick and wool ? Basically there will be many "ribs" and we take the rope or chord or strip and go " ulley-veliye-ulley-veliye" , inside of one rib, outside of next rib again inside of next rib like that. See this youtube link ,from 2.30 there is basic basket weave.

Priesh : Thanks for thinking its nice looking.
Manish: Thank you. Yes, it can keep a child busy. But managing the weave may be frustrating for a smallchild. What she can do is, make five flat mats and cellotape together four sides and bottom for a square basket.
Upfsabari : Thank you for such lovely words.
Very creative from normal source of material
Its a New idea-Basket from newspaper! Cute and Beautiful basket!
Thanks for sharing dear Swarna.
