This basket was made using used Christmas wrapping paper. After Christamas everyone has a pile of used wrapping paper. For this basket rather than just throw it away, I thought I would try and use some of it. After ripping the paper into strips I twisted them into a length of rope. Then, using some bits of raffia that had been used to tie one of the presents I coiled the paper rope into a small basket. You can see the coils clearly spiralling up when looking down on the basket.
