Easter Origami Tutorial: Traditional Basket

Paper used in this video: square with a side length of 15 cm (6 in), plus a strip measuring 15 cm by 3.75 cm (6 in by 1 1/2 in)
Finished model (excluding handle): side length of 5 cm (2 in), height of 2.5 cm (1 in)

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.


My granddaughter is getting married in June. I will make 80 of these for the wedding, plus a few origami models to give away. If my hands hold out! Thank you for making the tutorial. More helpful for me.
