Woven Baskets – Die Cut Baskets

The people have spoken, and I acquiesce! Each month, I send out a poll to my Patreon subscribers, to help me choose which design ideas I bring to life. This design received the most votes, and I am excited to share it with you today! Download my template, and read on to see how you can make these delicate, woven baskets.

I have been seeing a lot of baskets and furniture lately that make use of the rattan style of weaving, and I think it’s really cool! So, for today’s design, I thought I would take inspiration from the intricate shapes and patterns of this style and incorporate it into some basket designs.

Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the basket pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

 

Square Basket

2. To make the square basket, start by layering the two side/bottom pieces together. Use a glue stick to attach the strips directly on top of one another.

Then, take the other bottom piece, and weave the strips through the other bottom strips in an alternating pattern.

 

3. Fold the sides of the basket up, and attach the other side pieces by gluing them to the inside of the bottom/side pieces. Note: These sides are meant to curve in order to make the rounded corners of the basket.

Once all the sides are attached, you can add your basket handle!

 

Round Basket

4. Start by curving your basket sides. Then, attach them together to form a column.

Next, fold in all of your tabs, and attach the bottom basket piece, glueing them a few tabs at a time and working your way around. Then, attach the slightly smaller basket bottom piece to the inside in order to cover up the tabs.

Finally, attach your handles!

Woven Baskets

These baskets look really simple and yet detailed/delicate at the same time! Because they are made out of paper, they obviously can’t hold anything super heavy, but they can be lovely, decorative pieces for sure.

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other decorative freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making your very own, woven baskets! I hope you have as much fun putting them together as I did. Be sure to share your results with me on Instagram!
