We encircle the heart pattern on a piece of corrugated cardboard, as well as on sheets of plain cardboard and colored paper. Cut out. Hearts from a usual cardboard and dense stick together among themselves, then we make apertures approximately at identical distance from each other. Insert the toothpicks. 2. We begin to weave a basket. To do this, fix the thread on the first toothpick, tying a knot and lowering it down to the bottom. The plait in this way: We thread the thread for the toothpick - before the toothpick, etc.In the process of weaving toothpicks can fall, so you need to hold their hands and correct them periodically. 3. When the half of the first row is woven, and we found ourselves at the toothpick opposite the one where the knot was tied - we wind the thread around this toothpick and continue to weave further.
