This video describes how to fold a traditional origami basket.
I was inspired to make this tutorial while exploring a new origami book especially for beginners: "Origami Made Simple" by Russel Wood.
Russell Wood also has a YouTube channel, including a playlist of more tutorials for models diagrammed in the book.
