Valentine Heart Gift Baskets
Paper ~ 2 different coloured pieces
Pencil (or pen)
Take 2 pieces of paper
Put them together and fold them in half
The folded edge now needs to face you.
Mark off 8 cm from the edge
(you can make 2 baskets by marking 8 cm
from the other edge)
Draw the following shape
& cut it out;
Mark off 2 cm x 3
on each of the shapes
Cut along the lines part way up
You can now take the two pieces of paper apart
Now it's time to start weaving them together.
Once piece will go through the pink,
Then the pink will go through the purple
Carry on weaving the pieces.
Purple through the pink, then pink through the purple.
Once you have completed the first row
you move onto the next.
As you finish a row push it up so that you can add the next row.
When you finish all the rows it should look like this;
If you open the heart you will find you now have a basket.
From the paper you haven't used you need to cut
Using a glue stick attach to the heart
Your basket is now finished
Little Red is giving his relatives
some soaps that he has made.
