Popsicle Sticks Multipurpose Basket

Are you tired arranging your puzzled jewellery or accessories ?? then this Multipurpose basket  will gonna solve your trouble. I believe that beautiful jewelry should have a beautiful Handmade Jewellery Basket, but this Jewellery Basket has multipurpose use in addition to just jewelry. 😉

It may look very time consuming craft project but it only takes about 30 minutes. Once completely dry it is surprisingly strong. Once you start adding more layers it tends to get more stiffer and harder.

Material Needed:

≡ Popsicle Sticks/ Ice Cream Sticks Pack

≡ Acrylic Colors

≡ Strong Adhesive

≡ Handmade Paper

≡ Scissor/ Paper Cutting Knife

Let’s get started:

Step 1: To make the first half part of the basket, start by making a pentagon shape from Popsicle Sticks.

Step 2: Now you get the shape of your box exactly like you want because once you add layers it becomes stiffer. Hence start adding layers to the base shape until you get the desired height of the basket.

Step 3: Time to start from the bottom, the second half part. Glue the next Popsicle Stick a bit more inside than the other ones  in the Pentagon Shape. Make sure that the sticks aren’t overlapping each other.

Step 4: Keep doing that until you reached the point where you can’t overlap anymore.

Step 5: Here is when we add the bottom. Put a line of glue on the last layer that you lapped.
