Your creativity with grocery bags probably begins and ends with making covers for textbooks. Utilitarian brown paper is just not something you'd expect to ever look high-end. Yet that's just the result Erin Francois of the blog achieved with her fabulous DIY basket for .
Francois used plain paper bags (or kraft paper), hardwood scraps, skewers, a leather belt, and brass hardware to create the basket. The main portion is completely crafted from paper, weaving folded strips through a framework created by rolled paper columns.
If you've got a basket habit, this accessible weaving method offers basket possibilitess like never before. And though this project makes for beautiful storage, the basket could also be a thoughtful hostess gift.
