In the 50's we made them from colored paper. Take a square sheet. Fold in half, fold that in half, and then fold the square into a triange. (Like most people would fold paper to cut paper snow flakes.) Starting 2 inches from the bottom point cut slashes from the long sides, alternating sides. When opened make a handle from a strip of paper, and staple them to the corners of the paper. The basket is amazingly springy when you put candy and flowers in it.

We used to hang them on the front door knobs of our friends, ring the bell and hide.

Silly, and fun, how much better can you get?

Thank you Londa. I'll save the directions.

The ones we made had rows of crepe paper that we somehow scalloped the edges to look like a flower.
