Origami Basket by Kazukuni Endo 遠藤和邦

easter basket origami

I’ve been really slack with Easter this year, I hope to spend more time making ducks and chicks and things, but I at least wanted to make a nice origami basket.

This one is by Kazukuni Endo (遠藤和邦) I made it using 6×6 paper. Would have been easier with 8×8 solid colour paper.

This is my first attempt at the model, it is kind of hard, but I worked it out pretty good. Maybe medium difficulty.  Its really good as you get 2 pockets on the inside that flowers could be tucked into… or bunnies… eggs etc..

I will update this if I do this basket again, bigger.

Here it is, I used green card 25×25, it was too thick, I think paper would be better, the basket is big enough to hold only 1 Cadbury cream egg! big enough for many tiny eggs.

I left out the last part of the handle folding because the card was too thick. And I also stapled the handle rather than all that folding at the end.

    A basket is a container which is traditionally constructed from stiff fibres, which can be made from a range of materials, including wood splints, runners, and cane. While most baskets are made from plant materials, other materials such as horsehair, baleen, or metal wire can be used. Baskets are generally woven by hand. Some baskets are fitted with a lid, others are left open.
