Why not weave a small basket?
Material is thin and strong paper (30 centimeter square). Japanese paper is good.
Divide it in twelve.
Make a long tape with glue.
Twist the tape. A tape of 30 cm will be 26-27 cm cord.
Cut off 3 bases. A base is 13 cm. Also the end of the longer cord is a base and a handle.
Now I change the color of bases to show the process clearer.
The bases don't spread uniformly.
Weave the side.
Cut the excess of the bases except 2. Glue the ends of the bases to the top line of the basket. Glue both ends of 2 bases. It is a handle.
Wind the handle with the cord.
Wind the edge of the basket with the rest of cord. Glue the end of the cord to inside.
Diameter is 4.5 centimeters.
When increasing the bases, it will be strong a little.
Glue the handle.
Paper basket is rough and weak. It's only an accessory for doll.
If using a ready-made cord, you will make stronger one easily.
