Things you need for making Origami paper craft basket :

  1. Paper
  2. Scissors
  3. Glue
  4. Any accessories like glitter/ribbons/stick-ons (optional)

Paper craft instructions for Origami  basket :

  • Select a paper of your choice and make a square piece out of it. Now fold it along the diagonal to make a visible crease.Fold it again, but this time through the center point but parallel to the sides. You should have in your hand a square piece as in the last image.

  •  For convenience, I have marked the edges of the paper with number 1-8 as below.

  • Bring together points 2,4,6&8 to make a square shape as shown in the first image and press it down. Now, bring one of the open leaf corner to the center and fold as in the second image. Turn over the folded piece to the opposite side and fold the open leaf to the center (on the opposite side of the previously done leaf) and press down.
