Magazine mini Easter basket.
What you need:
-Scissors and craft knife
To make the base, cut a 9-inch square from a magazine cover. Use the ruler to draw a tic-tac-toe grid across the square, then cut it as shown, leaving four tabs (these will be the basket's sides).
With the craft knife, cut four slits in each tab as shown (an adult's job). Fold the four tabs up.
Cut more magazine covers into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Starting at the bottom, weave the strips in and out of the slits. When one strip ends, tape it in place, then begin weaving the next strip until all the sides are covered.
Tape on a strip to serve as a handle.
