First Fruits Basket
Begin by folding one of the pieces of card stock in half and cut slits about one inch wide beginning from the folded side up until an inch from the other side. On the other piece of card stock, cut one inch strips of paper. Use the strips to weave in and out of the paper with the slits going over and under each slit, and then tape each edge. Once the weaving is complete, fold about two inches of each side over carefully taping the four edges. Use a left over strip to tape a handle onto the basket.
Several weeks ago, as a craft for Parshas Eikev, we made the seven species fruits out of sponges, so now we had a fun basket to keep the fruits in.
