Guest Designer Joann Jamieson

Hello again everyone, Joann with you again to show you how to make a fun little basket. I got the idea from a little paper game I use to play with as a child. It is called Paper Fortune Teller. I found one in an old box of stuff and when I looked at it upside down, it was perfect for a basket.


and here it is with another angle


 To make this fun little box follow these simple steps: Cut a piece of cardstock 8 ½ inches x 8 ½ inches Score at 2 1/8, 4 ¼ and 6 ½

 Flip and score the other side the same 2 1/8, 4 ¼ and 6 ½ Place your Scor-Envi on your Scor-Pal and score at the 9 mark on all 4 sides

 To fold the basket do the following:
  1. Turn the cardstock so it looks like a Diamond
  2. Fold the 4 points into the middle so you are left with a square
  3. Flip the card stock over and fold the 4 points onto the middle again
  4. Fold the card stock in half and then fold in half again on the other side
  5. To make the basket simply place the folder card stock so that the top looks like a W and push in on the 4 corners.
  6. Glue the basket to a doily
  7. To make the handle I used a strip of paper 1 ½ x 10 ½ and punched the edge with a Martha Steward edge punch
Here's a list of the products I used for this project: Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party Martha Stewart Edge Punch Graphic 45 - Secret Garden Paper Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you can come back and visit again soon! hope you can come back and visit again soon! joann sig

How pretty. That origami fold is also called a salt and pepper dish. I have never seen it transformed so beautifully. What a great idea!
