Thrifty-Swifty Gifties 3

This week's gift idea is from Cut-Out-And-Keep, a great project-sharing web site that I love.

The idea is to use wire plant baskets as forms for a paper lantern. This one is made with craft paper (think brown paper shopping bags!) You could also use Decopatch paper or a fancy paper like this Midori Green Lace Paper. I would finish my project with a nice coat of Aquapro varnish to make it more durable and keep the colors bright.
