    Basket-2:
    You'll need cardboard to make a round figure for the base of the basket. Take 8 paper strips. At first take 2 strips and glue them at the center, which forms a cross. Now, do the same with the rest of the strips and make sure to glue them at the center. After laying all the 8 strips together glue the round cardboard at the center of the star shape.

    To make this basket you can use all the remaining strips, so that they don't get wasted. Stick all the remaining strips together vertically with glue. Cut out an oval shaped cardboard piece. Now take the strip and glue it with the oval shaped cardboard plate (as shown in the picture). Start coiling up carefully and continue gluing the strip until the basket reaches its required height. When the strip comes to an end fold it inside and use glue to make sure it doesn't come out.
