I finally got pictures taken and edited for the basket I posted here. I threw away my original measurements, so I am going off my memory which isn't all that great. This is only my second tutorial, so forgive me if I missed anything or haven't explained well enough.
Here are all the supplies you will need:
Glass Cutting Mat
Die Cutting Machine
Circle Nestabilities or Circle Punch
Using removable tape, tape cardstock of choice to glass cutting mat in a few areas so it doesn't shift. Then use Circle Scissors to make a 6" circle.
Here is a shot of the tape, you can see that you just need a tiny bit to hold it securely.
Once the circle is cut, stamp randomly on the circle. Obviously, if you don't want to stamp it, it can be left as is. For this one I used Ocean Tides carstock and ink with a SU! SAB set.
Once you are pleased with stamp placement, score at 1.25 on two opposite sides and at 2 on the other sides. Scor-Pal does not have a scoring channel at 1.25, so you must move the paper to the .25 mark and then score at 1.5.
Now, you need to make one cut on each side in order to assemble the basket. I used my ATG gun and tape to secure and it's still holding, so you don't need red line tape if you don't have it.
Ok, so now you just fold in the tabs and adhere to the sides.
Here is what your basket should look like so far. Now, we just have to make the handle and the insert for the terra cotta pot.
Cut matching cardstock to 4 3/8 x 5 3/8, score at 1" on all sides.
Grab a circle nestie and place in the center of the center panel. Secure with removable tape and then use die cutting machine to cut.
Then, make one cut on the score lines on all sides and secure to sides.
Once you have it secured well, place the insert into the basket bottom. It will be snug, so you may have to fiddle with it a bit.
Cut a 1 x 8.5 strip of matching cardstock for handle, if desired. Here I stamped with the same stamp. Secure just below the top of insert.
Wasn't that easy??!! Here is your finished basket.
Obviously, you can finish it as you like adding ribbon and other embellishments. If you decide to make one, I'd love to see it.
