Christmas Crafts I have been wanting to learn to make Danish woven paper heart baskets for years, but always felt intimidated by the instructions available to me.
So this Fall, Diane and I spent the day together figuring out how to make them. Of couse, SHE caught on right away and by the time I had finished my first practice basket, she was already in the middle of constructing a 5-strip basket with variations in the strip widths. I thought I'd share the process of making Woven paper basic three-strip basket with you I have tried to write this as if you and I are sitting together at my craft table and I am showing you step by step.
This project may seem a little tricky at first, but just be patient and follow the photos and instructions slowly, one step at a time. Once you have completed the first one, you will understand the trick to the weaving process. Hang them on your tree and place little treats inside. A great gift for young and old alike when they come to visit.

Although white and red is traditional in Norway, I am using colors that will show up better in photographs. Measure and cut a strip 3" wide and 9" long from each piece of paper. Fold each strip of paper exactly in half crosswise, as shown.
Place a 3" diameter biscuit cutter on the OPEN end of the folded papers. Use a pencil to trace the outline of the biscuit cutter onto the paper to create a half circle. Or, you can draw the half-circle freehand. Normally, I would draw my lines very lightly, but for this tutorial I am drawing them dark so you can see them!
Cut along the curved lines you have drawn. Again, be sure you are cutting the curve on the open end of the paper.
In the steps that follow, you will be dividing each folded piece into three 1" strips. You'll be cutting these strips most of the way across each piece, leaving those rounded ends un-cut. To help you gauge how far in to cut your strips, place one piece over the other, as shown.
When you've read the rest of the steps, this should make more sense. So, as we just discussed, mark three 1" strips on each piece of paper, and draw them on the paper. See how these lines begin at the fold and end in the curved edges? Now you are ready to cut!
Cut through both layers of paper along the lines you drew, beginning at the fold and cutting toward the curve.
For your first basket, you may want to number the strips as shown above. Once you have made your first basket, you will not need to number the strips again - it just helps you with learning the process. Lay the two folded paper pieces in front of you on the work table in the position shown above.
Don't worry if those numbers are hard to see here - they'll be clearer in the coming photos. Slip strip 1 between the top and bottom layers of strip 4. Now, slip strip 5 between the top and bottom layers of strip 1.
