Easter is a bright family holiday! Everyone bakes Easter cakes, paints eggs, and visits each other with them. And in order to visit beautifully, to please, and surprise, we will make a delicate and cute basket for an Easter egg using the origami technique.
How to make an Easter egg basket
Let’s choose a nice piece of paper. However, it can be just white, because you can always decorate it to your taste with appliqué, paints, felt-tip pens, ribbons…
You will need: a square sheet of paper measuring 21 cm (one chicken egg fits perfectly in a basket of such a square), a ruler and PVA glue.
1)Bend a square sheet along two diagonals:
2)Then bend across in one and the other direction:
3)Next, fold the square as shown in the photo. Watch the video, time 1:05.
4)Put the resulting rhombus on the table with free corners up:
5)Fold one layer down:
6)Flip it over and repeat the same on the other side:
7)Flip one layer from right to left so that the colored side of the paper is inside. Flip it over and do the same:
8)Using a ruler, visually divide the part into three equal parts, and make marks in the right places. I have a total length of 15 cm, so the marks are like this:
9)Fold the corners with an overlap according to the marks:
10)Flip it over and do the same:
11)Bend up the bottom corner, this will be the bottom of the basket:
12)Unfold the paper basket:
At this stage (or the previous one), glue the handles of the basket:
Decorate the basket in your own way. The origami basket is ready!
