How to make newspaper fruit basket

And this fruit bowl is so interesting that you can even gift with it, because the result and the compliments will be the same if you gift with an industrialized piece.

Mark the center of each of the cartons and drill a hole that is sufficient to pass the broom handle, but do not leave it loose. Support the first cardboard on top of the bobbin base and glue. It will support the first base of the fruit bowl of 35 cm in diameter. Measure from top to bottom, approximately 5 cm and attach the second base with the diameter of 25 cm.

Then place the straw in the holes that are already marked, these will be the straight straw in the upright position. Then tie the 2 bowls (which will serve as shapes).
