It wasn't easy to do initially. But once I got the idea of what was actually going on, I couldn't stop. I ended up making 4 in 1 sitting.
- I used magazine paper instead of newspaper - the paper weight is heavier so I folded the strips twice only and got it stiff enough. When I folded it thrice, the paper was a bit too stiff and kept coming apart.
- As the paper strip length was also shorter, I cut down the number of strips to 6x6. When I tried anything more than that, I got a very shallow container and it was very difficult to keep the shape as the strips wouldn't catch well.
- I used 1 cm strips - the thinner the strips, the narrower the base of the basket and the taller the basket.
Hope this inspires you too! Have fun!
