You can alternatively print out our grid paper onto normal printer paper or card and glue it to another material - perhaps wrapping paper (gift wrap) or even fabric.
These will ripen as they sit, but if theyre already extremely ripe, they may get mushy and be unappetizing.
If you gasket sit and try to braid, you'll find yourself being very tangled very quickly.
You're going sew to four separate lines into the gasket bottom - one make vertically, one horizontally, and two diagonals going through the center.
Print the small grid paper onto paper or card as appropriate for whatever material you are using to make your basket.If you don't do the previous step, you could wind up with all your knots in one place, which will make for an ugly braid.A fruit gift basket can be a wonderful present at any time of year.Turn the box over again and fold the corner squares in to form the box/basket shape.The fruit gift basket doesnt just have to include fresh fruit.You can trim or fold over the end of the braid to make it look neater if you like.Turn the bag so a side seam is facing you, and cut up and to the right in a sweeping motion until you get at least four inches in, and then begin cutting in a straight line.Make sure your strips all end at slightly different lengths, trimming if necessary.Fold each edge along the lines in turn, creasing well.Sew together multiple braids by folding the ends in (as shown in the last picture) and sewing around the edges.Also make sure not to knot too many times - two knots is more than sufficient.(YAY!) I assume you could also tape the ends to a table with decent results.
Above make and proceed as in Method.
Push your needle down through the base as shown in the first picture, and then bring it over the braid and back down through the base to secure the bottom row.
Another great addition to the fruit gift basket is nuts.
Turn your basket over and apply glue to the four corner squares (marked with a sticker in the photo below).Save any off-cuts of pattern to make the handle.Consider having two to three pieces of fruit per person as a good measure when putting together a fruit basket.Lay out a plastic bag, and fold in the sides as shown in picture two.You will have gasket six strands, but each will have a mate.
The first considerations when creating a fruit gift basket are size of basket and amount of fruit.
Now you'll tie on additional strips to each make of the six original strands as shown in photos 3-8.
